  • SS Imperator was an ocean liner built for the Hamburg America Line (Hamburg Amerikanische Paketfahrt Aktien Gesellschaft, or HAPAG), launched in 1912. Although in Europe, with the exception of Italy and France, all ships are usually referred to as feminine, during the Liner’s Hamburg American Line career the ship was to be referred to as masculine at the special request of Kaiser Wilhelm II. At the time of his completion in June 1913, he was the largest passenger ship in the world by gross tonnage, surpassing the new White Star giants, Olympic and Titanic. Imperator was the first of a trio of successively larger Hamburg American liners that included S.S. Vaterland (Later the United States Liner Leviathan) and S.S. Bismarck (Purchased and renamed Majestic for the White Star Line transatlantic passenger service). During World War I, the ship remained in port in Hamburg. After the war, it was briefly commissioned into the United States Navy as USS Imperator (ID-4080) and employed as a transport, returning American troops from Europe. Following its service with the U.S. Navy, Imperator was handed over to Britain's Cunard Line as part of war reparations where it sailed as the flagship RMS Berengaria for the final decade of its career.
