How was the Hapsburg lip inherited?

The Hapsburg lip was a trait with a dominant pattern of inheritance. This means that if a child inherited a gene for a jutting-out jaw from one parent, they would have a jutting-out jaw - even if they inherited a gene for a non-jutting-out jaw from the other parent.
