Mummy's Curse on the Titanic?

I have heard that at the time of the discovery of King Tut's tomb, 1922, a lot of superstion arose because of the death of many workers involved in the finding of the tomb. As a result of this superstion many other incidents occurred, including the sinking of the Titanic. According to the book, on board the Titanic was a rich American who had just bought the mummy of a High Priestess and was bringing it back to his home on the Titanic. It was popular belief that it was the mummy's curse which had caused the Titanic to sink!! How's that for a theory!

This is from the book
" Titanic Voices, Memories from the Fateful Voyage"
by, Donald Hyslop, Alastait Forsyth, and Sheila Jemima. pg 296.
