Besides, how old was the unsinkable Molly Brown when she died?
Philanthropist Margaret Tobin, better known as Molly Brown, was born on July 18, 1867, in Hannibal, Missouri. Sometimes referred to as "the Unsinkable Molly Brown," this survivor of the 1912 Titanic disaster has become the subject of many myths and legends throughout the years.
The Molly Brown House Museum (also known as House of Lions) is a house located at 1340 Pennsylvania Street in Denver, Colorado, United States that was the home of American philanthropist, socialite, and activist Margaret Brown.
Margaret "Maggie" Brown (née Tobin; July 18, 1867 – October 26, 1932), posthumously known as "The Unsinkable Molly Brown", was an American socialite and philanthropist. She is best remembered for exhorting the crew in Lifeboat No. 6 to return to the debris field of the 1912 sinking of RMS Titanic to look for survivors.

Today in History: Wreck of the Titanic found. Thirty years ago today on September 1, 1985, the 73-year-old Titanic wreckage was finally discovered. The tragedy of the RMS Titanic rocked the world on April 15, 1912, when the "unsinkable" ship destined for the U.S., hit an iceberg and took 1,500 innocent lives.
Scott Piatkowski: The sinking of the Titanic — a ship thought to be unsinkable — represented not only a tragic loss of human life, but was also a symbol of mankind's hubris.
The Titanic sank 400 miles (640 kilometres) off the coast of Newfoundland. The wreck lies at a great depth, approximately 2.4 miles (3.75 kilometres, or 12,600 feet) below the surface of the North Atlantic. The ship broke in two as she sank, and the stern and bow of the wreck now lie 1,970 feet apart.
The last living survivor of the Titanic, Millvina Dean, has died at the age of 97 in Southampton after catching pneumonia. As a two-month-old baby, Dean was the youngest passenger on board the giant liner when it sank on its maiden voyage with the loss of more than 1,500 lives.
Few of Titanic's animals survived the ship's sinking. Three of the dogs were taken aboard lifeboats by their owners. Margaret Hays' Pomeranian got away safely in Lifeboat 7 and lived until 1919, while Elizabeth Rothschild refused to board Lifeboat 6 unless her dog was allowed to come too.
How Large Was The Iceberg That Sank The Titanic. The exact size of the iceberg will probably never be known but, according to early newspaper reports the height and length of the iceberg was approximated at 50 to 100 feet high and 200 to 400 feet long.
Iceberg That Sank Titanic Was 100,000 Years Old: Experts. London: The giant iceberg responsible for sinking the Titanic on its maiden voyage may have originated in southwest Greenland in snow that fell about 100,000 years ago, scientists say.
The International Ice Patrol has now traced where the iceberg that sank Titanic originated. Eighty-five percent of all icebergs found in the North Atlantic come from the ice fjords on Greenland's west coast, and the ice shelf in Ilulissat is the most likely birthplace of the Titanic iceberg.
The Secret of How the Titanic Sank. For decades after the disaster, there was little doubt about what sank the Titanic. When the "unsinkable" ship, the largest, most luxurious ocean liner of its time, crashed into an iceberg on its maiden voyage in 1912, it took more than 1,500 of its 2,200 passengers to the bottom.
The water temperature on the night of the Titanic sinking was thought to be about 28 degrees Fahrenheit, just below freezing. Such a temperature was of course lethally cold for all those passengers who had been forced to take to the open water to escape the sinking ship.
