Seiner Majestät Schiff Wörth was one of four pre-dreadnought battleships of the Brandenburg class, built in the early 1890s. Obsolete by the start of World War I, SMS Wörth, along with her sister ship Brandenburg served in a limited capacity in the Imperial German Navy, primarily as barracks ships. Following the end of the war, the Wörth was scrapped in the port of Danzigmarker.

Service history

In 1900, the 2nd Division was sent to China during the Boxer Rebellion. Wörth, along with her sister ship Brandenburg participated in the expedition, although did not engage in any fighting. The 2nd Division remained on station in China until August, 1901, at which point they were recalled to Wilhelmshavenmarker, Germany.

At the onset of hostilities during World War I, Wörth was assigned to V Squadron. Her role was a coastal defense ship. Within a year, however, the ship was deactivated and assigned to barracks ship duties in Danzigmarker, along with the Brandenburg. In 1919, Wörth was stricken from the German Navy register and sold for scrap.
