History Fact

Lepus Rex

Louis Bonaparte, brother of Napoleon, was known as and is still called “The Rabbit of Holland” because he mispronounced the Dutch phrase “King of Holland” and instead said “Iek ben Konijn van Olland” (“I am Rabbit of Holland”) when he took over the Netherlands in 1806. It wasn’t all in jest—he was devoted to the Dutch people and was also known as “Louis the Good.”

Movie/TV Trivia

The constellation that Rose is looking up at was completely wrong

Right towards the end of the movie, the audience sees Rose lying on the wooden door and staring up at the night sky. However, after the film was released, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson contacted Cameron to inform him that the constellations Rose was looking at were completely wrong.

Ever the perfectionist, Cameron re-edited the movie and corrected the mistake just in time for the 10th anniversary director’s cut.

There are plenty of movie mistakes which did make the cut though – Rose’s beauty spot seems to move around her face an awful lot whilst Jack’s suspenders have been known to disappear in various scenes before magically reappearing! It seems as though even James Cameron couldn’t stop a handful of mistakes entering the final cut.

The constellation mistake must really have got on Cameron’s nerves though, especially as Tyson reportedly rubbed it in the director’s face several times!

The director didn’t hold it against Tyson though because he later asked the astrophysicist to consult on the director’s cut of Titanic.
