Was the Titanic a British Ship?

J.P. Morgan

Although the Titanic was built in Belfast, Ireland and registered in Liverpool, England, it was actually owned by the White Star Line, which was a part of IMM (International Mercantile Marine) corporation, owned by American financier: J.P. Morgan. Another interesting fact is that J.P. Morgan was supposed to travel on the Titanic’s maiden voyage but canceled at the last minute because of illness. He died shortly after the Titanic tragedy in 1913.
