The story of the RMS Titanic is a legendary tale known to many, largely popularized by the 1997 film featuring Jack and Rose, played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet.
However, the Titanic’s sinking is not just a Hollywood creation but a real-life tragedy.
In 1912, the Titanic, a massive ocean liner, met its demise. On April 15, at 2:20 a.m., after just four days into its maiden voyage from Southampton, England to New York City, the Titanic struck an iceberg and sank.
Surprising Titanic facts you’ve never heard before
Over 2,200 people were on board, a mix of passengers and crew, but tragically, nearly 1,500 lost their lives.
Only 706 individuals survived, with first-class passengers having a higher chance of survival compared to those in third class.
The Titanic collided with the iceberg off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada, and it measured a colossal 882 feet and 9 inches.
Despite some remains being consumed by bacteria, the Titanic still rests at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean.
The ship took just over 2.5 hours to sink completely. Jack and Rose, the iconic film characters, never existed in real life.
Additionally, Molly Brown, an American socialite and Titanic survivor, inspired the film “The Unsinkable Molly Brown,” with Debbie Reynolds playing her role. Kathy Bates portrayed Molly Brown in the 1997 film “Titanic.”
Jack and Rose, the famous characters from the movie Titanic played by Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, were not real people. They were fictional characters created for the movie. The real Titanic had its own passengers and crew, but Jack and Rose were not among them. Their story was a creative invention for the film and not based on actual historical events.
The story of the Titanic continues to captivate us, with ongoing investigations into the wreck and the enduring legacy of its passengers and crew.
