This is a color postcard of the Battleship S. M. S. Kaiserin. It was named for Kaiserin Auguste Viktoria, Kaiser Wilhelm II’s wife. She was one of four ships of the Kaiser Klasse. She was commissioned in 1913 and saw service at the Battle of Jutland (Skagerrakschlacht) as a part of Battleship Squadron Nr 3. She was scuttled at Scapa Flow in 1919 with the bulk of the newer and larger German ships. The ship is shown in profile under steam. The postcard was never mailed.
