‘Last great mystery of the Titanic’ solved: Canadian woman who claimed to have survived the sinking proved to be a fraud after DNA testing

A team of ‘Titanicologists’ have solved what is considered to be one of the last great mysteries – or hoaxes – of the doomed luxury liner, over a century after it sank.

A woman who claimed to be the presumed-dead two-year-old daughter of a wealthy family that died on Titanic in 1912 has been exposed as a fraud following extensive DNA tests.
Helen Kramer first came forward in 1940 claiming to be Loraine Allison, a toddler traveling with her parents Hudson and Bess and seven-month-old brother Trevor on the ship.
Hudson Allison was a Canadian entrepreneur and the family traveled with an extensive entourage of servants.
