Of the estimated 2,224 passengers and crew aboard, more than 1,500 died. She was built by the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast.
Thomas Andrews, chief naval architect of the shipyard at the time, died in the Titanic was under the command of Capt. The ocean liner carried some of the wealthiest people in the world. The accommodation was designed to be the pinnacle of comfort and luxury. Titanic only carried enough lifeboats for 1,178 people, about half the number on board, and one third of her total capacity. On 14 April 1912, four days into the cross Atlantic crossing she hit an iceberg.
She foundered with well over one thousand people still aboard. Just under two hours after Titanic sank, the Cunard liner RMS Carpathia arrived and brought aboard an estimated 705 survivors. The wreck of Titanic was discovered more than 70 years later in 1985 during a US military mission and it remains on the seabed. Thousands of artefacts have been recovered and displayed at museums around the world.Titanic has become one of the most famous ships in history. The final survivor of the sinking, Millvina Dean, aged two months at the time, died in 2009 at the age of 97. Titanic was long thought to have sunk in one piece and, over the years, many schemes were put forward for raising the wreck. The fundamental problem was the sheer difficulty of finding and reaching a wreck that lies over 12,000 feet (3,700 m) below the surface.
Since its initial discovery, the wreck of Titanic has been revisited on numerous occasions by explorers, scientists, filmmakers, tourists and salvagers, who have recovered thousands of items from the debris field for conservation and public display. For more than 100 years, she has been the inspiration of fiction and non-fiction but it was not until 1955 that the first historically accurate book A Night to Remember was published.
The most financially successful by far has been James Cameron's Titanic (1997), which became the highest-grossing film in history up to that time, as well as the winner of 11 Oscars at the 70th Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director for Cameron.
