RMS Titanic was a passenger liner sank in the North Atlantic Ocean 15 April 1912 after colliding with an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton, England to New York City. The sinking of Titanic caused the deaths of 1,514 people in one of deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in history. She was the largest ship afloat at the time of her maiden voyage. One of three Olympic class ocean liners operated the White Star Line, she was built between 1909–11 in Belfast. She carried 2,223 people.

Her passengers included some of the wealthiest people the world, as well as over a thousand emigrants from Great Britain and Ireland, Scandinavia and elsewhere seeking a new life in North America. The ship designed to be the last word in comfort and luxury, with a gymnasium, swimming pool, libraries, high-class restaurants and opulent cabins. Though she had advanced safety features as remotely activated watertight doors, she lacked enough lifeboats to accommodate all of those aboard; she carried only enough lifeboats for 1,178 people.

After leaving Southampton 10 April 1912, Titanic stopped Cherbourg in France and Queenstown (now Cobh) in Ireland heading towards New York. On 14 April 1912, four days into the crossing, she hit an iceberg at 11:40 pm. The collision caused Titanic's hull plates to buckle inwards in a number of locations on her side and opened five of her sixteen watertight compartments to the sea. Over the next two and a half hours, the ship gradually filled water and sank. Passengers and some crew members were evacuated in lifeboats, many of were launched only partly filled. Just before 2:20 am Titanic broke up and sank bow-first with over a thousand people still on board. Those in the water died within minutes from hypothermia caused immersion in the freezing ocean. The 710 survivors taken aboard from the lifeboats by RMS Carpathia a hours later.
