What are the cases when the royals family inbred? What are the consequences of royal inbreeding? Today we are going to look at the stories of the past, when royal inbreeding went horribly wrong. When we talk about inbreeding we are referring to reproducing with someone who is closely related in terms of genetics. We see this happen a lot when dogs are bred, and many people are critical of it. You see, when a pooches’ mum and dad are not genetically related that puppy gets diverse genes. This is a good thing as if both were the same or similar and carried a faulty gene the puppy would also get that fault. With a mix, it has more choice and can override the bad gene. As one dog breeding website puts it, some inbred dogs are “born sick and die sick.” With that in mind, how does inbreeding bode for humans? That’s what we’ll find out today, in this episode of the Infographics Show, When Royal inbreeding went wrong.
