    The British battle ship Royal Sovereign. Twin screws. Displacement, 14,260 tons. I.h.p. 13.312. Speed 18 knots. From Cassier's Magazine's Marine Number 1897. Since she is placed first among the warships portrayed in the publication, I suppose she was the object of some pride in Britain at the time.
