Titanic: The Ship That Never Sank


What if the sinking of Titanic was a planned event?

The world’s largest and most luxurious cruise liner hit an iceberg on its voyage early on the morning of the 15th April 1912, killing 1500 of the ship’s 2224 passengers and crew.


Titanic was one of three Olympic class ocean liners constructed at the Harland and Wolff shipyards in Belfast, the other two being the RMS Britannic and the RMS Olympic.

The Olympic was launched a year before the Titanic but seemed to share its more famous sister ship’s poor luck.


Within months of its launch in 1911, it had two accidents causing serious structural damage.

Repairs would be disastrously expensive, running into millions of pounds. The already troubled White Star Line was facing a potential financial disaster.

White Star and its owner JP Morgan have planned an audacious insurance scam to try and recover their investment in the troubled Olympic line.

Apparently it was NOT the Titanic that sank, but its sister ship, the Olympic. The Olympic was swapped with the Titanic and sunk in a staged accident. The Titanic, now disguised as the Olympic, would then carry on in service.

Could it really have been the Olympic that sank in the Titanic’s place?

Proponents of the swap theory have pointed out differences in the number of portholes on the ships. The Olympic had 16 and the Titanic had 14.

Photographs taken of the Titanic in dry dock show it with 14 portholes. But by the time of its doomed journey it now had 16, just like the Olympic.

Last minute cancellations

JP Morgan

Many of the richest and most prestigious names in early 20th-century society were booked onto the Titanic.

JP Morgan - the international financier who owned the White Star’s parent company, was due to travel on the Titanic but cancelled his trip a few days before the departure, claiming illness.

A New York Times reported discovered this to be a lie; Morgan was actually seen perfectly well with his mistress in France on the very day Titanic sunk.

The wreck

The wreck of the Titanic was discovered by Robert Ballard in 1985. Some evidence from the wreck supports the switch theory.

The stamp 401, the id number used for the Titanic at Harland and Wolff, can be seen on the Titanic’s propeller.

However, some authors have suggested that the Titanic propeller was fitted to the Olympic during its repair following the collision with the Hawke.

If true, this would be strong evidence that the vessel on the ocean floor was really the Olympic.

  1. Quit spreading misinformation. Your wreck diagram is wrong. The bottom photograph is of the Olympic and the one above it is the Titanic. The Olympic's windows are evenly spaced because it's a promenade. The Titanic's were were different because those are windows for cabins. Any amateur historian knows this and anyone writing an article for the internet could have easily done a google image search, at the very least.
