People with hemophilia are born with it. Hemophilia is a hereditary disease - in other words, it "runs in families" (is inherited). There is another type of hemophilia called acquired hemophilia. Acquired hemophilia results from the development of autoantibodies (mostly of the IgG1 and IgG4 subclasses) directed against clotting factors. Acquired hemophilia can be brought on by reactions to medications such as penicillin, sulfonamides, phenytoin, methyldopa, chloramphenicol, interferon alpha, and others.

"Royal" hemophilia is simply a reference to Hemophilia B and is therefore a result of a deficiency in the Clotting Factor IX protein. It is sometimes called the royal disease because it has been known to have been passed through some royal families throughout history.
