The R.M.S Titanic was first thought of at a dinner in Lord Pirries house. Lord Pirrie and Joseph Bruce Ismay thought of the plans. Almost immeadeatly after getting approval, construction of the massive liner began at the Harland and Wolf in Belfast, Ireland. This massive liner was to be 882 feet-long and 44,000 Tons. This was huge for her time. She was christined in 1911 by Lord Pirrie, before being launched. She was put in a dry dock where the ships final touches were added and she was fitted out. Then she was Sea Trials. Among the Amnetties were the Gymnasium, The Indoor Swimming Pool, The Promeneade decks, and more. There was also 2 lavish and luxurish Parlor Suites, wich featured a sitting room, 2 bedrooms, a dining room, a private was/bath, and a 50 foot private promeneade. Both suites were reserved on the maiden voyage for Joseph Bruce Ismay and Lord Pirrie, but after Lord Pirrie died, she was reserved for millonaire Sir Charles Williams and his Father. Finally on April 10,1912 the Titanic departed on her Maiden Voyage from Southmton, England, to New York, USA. Sadly on April 14, 1912 the Titanic struck an iceberg and sank the next morning. She was later found by Dr. Robert Ballard in 1985.

She made a few stops at other European countries, then sailed for New York. At 12:00, she got hit and sank about two hours later.It was not 100% sure she was hit by a iceberg. it could have been the goverment or the White Star Line itself, for economic reasons.
