RMS Titanic, known for being the largest ship at the time of its maiden voyage, gained notoriety for claiming to be unsinkable. As we all know, in one of the greatest tragedies of all time, the ship hit an iceberg and sank in less than three hours, laying to rest over 12,000 feet below the surface of the Atlantic Ocean. In 1997, the ship was featured in the renowned movie Titanic, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, and that movie became the account that most people got their facts from. However, being a film — limited both by time and its need to follow only one or two stories — it couldn’t possibly convey all of the fascinating facts and stories from that fateful night in 1912. If you’ve only ever watched the movie, you might be missing out on some of the fascinating and truly titanic history of the ship.
