Description

Fun facts of the sinking of Titanic: The estimated overall wealth of the passengers in first class was $500 million.

$87 million of this is attributed to John Jacob Astor IV. (American business magnate, real estate developer, writer, lieutenant colonel in the Spanish–American War). Astor died in the sinking of the RMS Titanic during the early hours of April 15, 1912, as a ‘women and children first’ protocol was generally followed. Astor was the richest passenger aboard the RMS Titanic and was thought to be among the richest people in the world at that time with a net worth of roughly $87 million when he died (equivalent to $2.33 billion in 2020).

Not included, however, were the supposed riches of Alfred Nourney (Dutch-born German, was 20 then). Travelling under the false title Baron Alfred von Drachstedt, Nourney used his assumed aristocratic status to transfer to first class. He had purchased expensive items, including clothes, jewellery, walking sticks, two sets of toilet articles and a fountain pen, in order to support his pretence.

On the night of April 14, 1912, he was playing bridge with other men in the first-class smoking room. When Nourney first sensed a disturbance, he briefly left to investigate, but returned to continue playing. Minutes later, they became aware of the situation and boarded Lifeboat #7 without difficulties, lowering away at 12:45 am. While the others were rowing, he sat motionless, smoking cigarettes. He also carried a pistol which he used to fire gunshots into the air through the night. They were rescued by the RMS Carpathia at 5:10 am.
