HMS Black Prince

1859-60 Robert Napier and Sons lost money on construction of their first ironclad warship, HMS Black Prince, because of the difficulty of manufacturing wrought iron armour plate to the Admiralty specification. She was launched in 1862[1].

1904 The Thames Iron Works, Shipbuilding and Engineering Co built a cruiser by name of Black Prince.
