Battleship Kronprinz belonged to the Konig class of the Kaiser German Navy during WWI. It was first laid down in 1912 and launched and commissioned in 1914. Battleships of the Konig class were mighty vessels, excellently geared for North Sea conditions. The four sister ships formed the 3rd Squadron of the Open Sea Navy (Hochseeflotte). This squadron took part in all battle operations of the Open Sea Navy after WWI started. One of the sorties caused the Battle of Jutland, which lasted for two days and was the greatest and fiercest sea battle of WWI. The British battleships Warspite, Valiant and Malaya were severely damaged by 3rd Squadron fire.
