The British passenger liner RMS Titanic, sank in the North Atlantic Ocean on 15 April 1912. Carrying 2,224 passengers and crew, she famously hit that fateful iceberg on her maiden voyage.


Traveling from Southampton, UK to New York City it was the largest ship afloat at the time, and the second of three Olympic class ocean liners operated by the White Star Line.


Built by the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast, its naval architect Thomas Andrews, was among the 1,502 who died as the Titanic went down. The tragic event is remembered as one of the deadliest maritime disasters during contemporary peace.


RMS Carpathia became famous for rescuing the survivors of RMS Titanic after the latter ship hit an iceberg and sank.
