The Titanic's mummy curse is an urban legend, possibly based on a Priestess of Amun-Ra, who lived in 1050 BC According to legend, after the discovery in 1890 of his mummy in Egypt, the buyer of the mummy ran seriously misfortune. The mummy was then reportedly donated to the British Museum, where he continued to cause mysterious problems for visitors and employees. The mummy was eventually purchased by journalist William Thomas Stead, who declined to grant a curse, as quirks of circumstance. The legend states that he arranged for the mummy to be hidden at the bottom of his car for fear that he would not be taken aboard the Titanic because of its reputation. He would have revealed the presence of other passengers mummy the night before the accident.

Official records say they never received the British Museum's mummy, only the lid of your coffin (which is on display at the museum and known as the "mother unlucky"). In addition, except during the war and special exhibitions abroad, the cover did not leave the Egyptian room.
