HMS Monarch was the second of four Orion-class dreadnought battleships built for the Royal Navy. She spent the bulk of her career with the Home and Grand Fleets. She took part in the attempt to intercept the German ships that had bombarded Scarborough, Hartlepool and Whitby in late 1914. In May 1916 she took part in the Battle of Jutland and with her sister ship Orion engaged  and the battlecruiser S.M.S. Lutzow. She also particpated in the inconclusive action of 19 August 1916. The ship was listed for disposal in mid-1922, but was hulked for use as a stationary training ship. In late 1923 Monarch was converted into a target ship and was sunk in early 1925.
