British Royalty. Viscount Trematon. Born Rupert Alexander George Augustus von Teck, at Claremont House, Esher, Surrey, the eldest son of Alice Mary Victoria Augusta Pauline, Princess of Albany and Sir Alexander Augustus Frederick William Alfred George von Teck. From his mother, Rupert inherited the blood disorder haemophilia, which had been passed to her from her grandmother, Queen Victoria. In 1917 during the anti-Germanic climate of the First World War, his name was legally changed to Rupert Alexander George Augustus Cambridge, and he was styled Viscount Trematon. He attended Eton and Trinity College, Cambridge University. While traveling in Bellevue-sur-Saone, France, Rupert died as a result of injuries sustained in a car accident. Funeral services were held for him at St George's Chapel, Widsor Castle, four days prior to what would have been his twenty-first birthday.
