HMS Prince of Wales

Seven ships of the Royal Navy have been named HMS "Prince of Wales", after numerous holders of the title the Prince of Wales. Another ship is planned:

*HMS "Prince of Wales" was a 74-gun third-rate launched in 1765. She had been originally planned as HMS "Hibernia", but the name was changed prior to launch. She was broken up in 1783.
*HMS "Prince of Wales" was a 90-gun second-rate launched in 1794 and broken up in 1822.
*HMS "Prince of Wales" was a 38-gun transport purchased in 1795, and still on the records in 1801.
*HMS "Prince of Wales" was a 14-gun sloop launched in 1805. Her fate is unknown.
*HMS "Prince of Wales" was a 121-gun screw-propelled first-rate launched in 1860. She was converted to a training ship and renamed HMS "Britannia" in 1869, hulked in 1909 and sold in 1914. She was finally broken up in 1916.
*HMS "Prince of Wales" was a "Formidable" class battleship launched in 1902 and sold for scrap in 1920.
*HMS "Prince of Wales" was a "King George V" class battleship launched in 1939 and sunk in combat in 1941.
