The RMS Titanic was, and is, the most famous ship in history. The British passenger liner was, at the time of its construction, the largest ship in the world. It was the second of three Olympic-class ships built by the White Star Line, constructed in the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast and designed by Thomas Andrews.
It wasn't only the Titanic's size that made it famous. On the morning of April 15, 1912, the Titanic sank into the North Atlantic Ocean after hitting an iceberg during its headline-making maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. Approximately 1,500 people died in the accident.
