SMS Kaiserin

SMS "Kaiserin" ("Empress") was a "Kaiser" class battleship built in Germany prior to World War I and which served in the High Seas Fleet of the German Imperial Navy during that war.

"Kaiserin" was the third ship of five which comprised the "Kaiser" class and was the only vessel to be given the name SMS "Kaiserin". She was built by Howaldtswerke in Kiel

During the war, "Kaiserin" was assigned to the 3rd Battleship squadron along with its class-mates. The ship was interned at Scapa Flow until the scuttling of the fleet on 21 June 1919.

The wreck was raised and broken up in 1937.
