Was the Titanic really the Olympic?

No. The Titanic was the sister ship of the Olympic. The Olympic set off on her maiden voyage on 14 June, 1911; less than a year before the Titanic set off on her fateful maiden voyage. i believe that even tho the Olympic was made a year before the titanic the olympic went instead of the titanic, because of financial difficulties. if you watch the lost video of the Titanic then you can see to holes on the front this was only on the olympic because the olympic was damaged the on her maiden voyage. in my heart she is titanic in real life she is the Olympic.

Is it true that the Titanic wasn't the Titanic?

yes it is true, "Titanic" was not Titanic Some people think that the Titanic was swapped with her sister she Olympic after she damaged her prop and had to return to Belfast to be repaired. The builders knew it would be quicker to finish titanic that it would be to fix Olympic. At the time changes were being made to Titanic to make it slightly different from Olympic but to finish Titanic quicker they decided not to make the changes so they remained identical. Some people think they altered Titanic to make it look like Olympic and Olympic to look like Titanic so they could sink the Olympic and get the insurance money. There is evidence to support this e.g why did the first officer not, when he saw the iceberg reverse the port engine and leave the starboard engine going full ahead with the helm hard over. This would have made the ship turn faster. It was also demonstrated during Titanic's sea trials. A few people even say that the lookouts saw the iceberg at 11:15, 25 minuets before Titanic hit the iceberg, and that the officers on the bridge did nothing. However there's also evidence against it e.g after the Titanic sank the director of the White Star Line, Bruce Ismay, lead an isolated life in Scotland and rarely did anything in public. Why would his plan have been to sink the Titanic and then do that. And alot of important people died on Titanic like the ships architect Thomas Andrews who stayed on the ship when it sank and died. They would not have planned to kill these important people. Nobody really knows if the ships were swapped. I don't think they were.
