1. A shipyard worker was not accidentally killed and sealed into Titanic’s hull during construction.

2. The White Star Line never claimed that the Titanic was unsinkable.

3. The owner of White Star Line, J. Bruce Ismay, never ordered Captain Smith to go faster through the ice field.

As Titanic Stories points out, if that were true, then all of the boilers would have to been lit (which they weren’t).

4. The Titanic was not the first ship to send out an SOS distress signal.

5. The Titanic sunk because it carried a cursed mummy in its hold.

There is no record of a mummy being transported aboard the Titanic.

6. The Titanic’s hull number did not spell out NO POPE .

Titanic’s hull number was 401.

7. The iceberg did not create a 300-foot gash.

8. The last piece the Titanic band played was not “Nearer My God To Thee.”

Most survivors only recall hearing popular music of the time being played. The one person that claimed that the song was played got off the ship long before it sank.

It is also highly unlikely that the band played up until the moment the ship sank.

This myth mainly comes from a scene in the 1958 film A Night To Remember. James Cameron recreated that same scene in Titanic.

9. Men did not dress up as women to get into lifeboats.
