Default prince albert victor's intelligence (or lack thereof)

That pav was a bit dim seems well established from different sources, but the fact that he had a tutor while at cambridge cannot be adduced as evidence to this effect, as it seems to be in the Suspects page devoted to him:
"That his intelligence was lower than expected of a future monarch is not disputed and it is believed that this limited mental ability was one of the reasons why he required a tutor at Cambridge."
All Cambridge (and Oxford) undergraduates had, and have, tutors, it is a unique aspect of the intensive educational experience at these elite institutions. The tutors don't help the students with remedial work, they supervise the bulk of their work in very small settings, meeting with them a couple of times a week.
Here's a link that explains the system concisely:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tutorial_system
From which i quote the first paragraph:
"At both University of Cambridge and University of Oxford, undergraduates are taught in the tutorial system. Students are taught by faculty fellows in groups of one to three. At Cambridge, these are called "supervisions" and at Oxford they are called "tutorials." One benefit of the tutorial system is that students receive direct feedback on their essays in a small discussion setting."
A small point, to be sure, but i think it should be corrected.

Very true, it has been stated Prince Albert Victor had low intelligence and speculation of him suffering from learning difficulties. Information like this encourages me to believe Prince Albert Victor had nothing to do with the 1888 murders. Also the matter of Prince Albert Victor not being in London when the murders were being committed. I doubt - even in todays society - that he could eat dinner with the Queen in Scotland, and make it back down to London to slaughter women in one night. there are too many variables towards Prince Albert Victor such as; low intelligence and not being in London at the time, to put forward a convincing arguement that he was Jack the Ripper. The reason he is amongst the "suspects" is because in the 1970's it came to light that Prince Albert Victor liked to endulge in some thrills which would be immensely frowned upon to a member of the Royal family.

I've heard that average intelligence is a common trait in the British Royal Family - that almost all require special tutoring in order to make it through college. This is what a British commentator I saw relate on TV anyway. Maybe he had some ax to grind or something. If it's true, perhaps PAV was just inside the family norm.

I don't remember who the British commentator was. This was not meant to be an insult on my part - just going by what I'd heard from this guy which went unchallenged.

with respct you should really get your facts right before you cast judgmetns about people.

eddy was sexualy abused by his farther the king , as a boy which sent eddy into a state of schizophrenia, and he was so traumatised that he just went numb in the head to block out the images and thoughts , your not being realy fair by casting judgmetns about eddy when you have no real proof.

its easy to say that eddy was dorment of mind , it was also very true and a recorded fact , by many people , but the reason for his mind dormency was due to his childhood experinces by his farther who sodomised eddy causing him to become addicted to sex and masturbation. only you wont hear about that becuase nad things happen behind closed doors, you only see the effects and eddy was too scared to talk about it becuase his farther would beat him and he was a big man

if you dont know for sure, please dont cast disbursions

it was stated that eddy had low inteligence, but the person who cast that judgement was obviously not very inteligent . becuase eddy was born just as normal as anyone else.
and when he was a boy he was sexualy abused by his farther the king of england , and he sodomised eddy and made him perform oral sex on him

eddy was seriously damaged as a result and to block the pain out became dormant of mind , did you consider that to be a posibility

he was shcizophrenic, and hearing voices in his head because the nrifge between his right and left brain collpased as a result of the abuse.
