Battleships of the 19th Century

Battleships names are in italics, class names in bold. Ship names in bold as well as italics are the only ship of that class (ie. they are 'one-offs'). Ships are listed first by nationality, then by the completion/commission date of the first ship of each class. This list does not include ships not completed. For a separate list of battleships not completed, completed as other types of ship, or planned but never laid down, see the Battleships That Never Were page.

Jump down the list to nation: Argentina, Austria-Hungary, Brazil, Chile, France, Germany/Prussia, Great Britain/U.K., Italy, Japan, Russia, Spain, Sweden, U.S.A.
