The birthplace of Bence is unpronounceable. It’s a city in Hungary called Székesfehérvár.
Like every parent, they couldn’t wait to see the face of their child. How is he going to look? Like his pops or mom? Is he going to resemble like any of the parents?
When Bence was born, he didn’t appear anything close to his parents. He had a thick, snow-white hair!
Some babies are born with no hair. Some are born with lots of hair, but Bence, the little winter king was born with all white hair. It’s not something you see every day in the brith room.
The styling is for old people, who got white hair due to stress or genes. My stepfather used to say: “do you think I got these white hairs because I had no problems?” So, yeah, white hair can mean that we’ve been through a lot. Bence was born with all that experience before he went through it!
To be born white extremely light hair is typical for Scandinavians, but not completely white, pale as a wall. That’s why it is a rare sigh to see white hair on a newborn.
Bence’s parents were worried about his albinism, a condition that affects the production of melanin, the pigment that colours skin, hair and eyes… even though he looks magnificent.
Albinism is not life-threatening, although people with it are more sensitive to light and increases their risk of developing skin cancer.
After hefty testing, the research determined that he did not have albinism. What a twist.
He had very little melanin, which is why he was born with a pale tone and white hair. He is delivered on schedule and is in perfect health. His hair will turn darker as he aged, something like Benjamin Button!
All the nurses adored him at the hospital. He was known as “Prince Charming.”
According to Dr. Zoltan Kummer, Bence’s hair could become darker in a few years, and the problem is more of a localized, possibly transitory pigment deficit.
In the city he was born, Székesfehérvár, is frequently referred to as Fehérvár, which in Hungarian means “white castle.” He resembles like a newborn king of the white castle.
As a result of being unique, he gained worldwide attention and millions around the globe know the story about the white king from Hungary.
