Prince Waldemar of Prussia (full name Waldemar Wilhelm Ludwig Friedrich Viktor Heinrich) (1889–1945) was the firstborn child of Prince Albert Wilhelm Heinrich of Prussia and Princess Irene of Hesse and by Rhine, and a great-grandson of Queen Victoria. Like his little brother Heinrich and a number of his cousins, Prince Waldemar had hemophilia, though he defied the odds and lived to 56. He and his wife, Princess Calixta of Lippe–Biesterfeld, fled from the Red Army at the end of World War II, though after the Americans arrived in Bavaria, all medical supplies were diverted to treat concentration-camp survivors, and Prince Waldemar bled to death.
