The HMS Duke of Wellington was a three decker naval warship, a ship of the line powered by both steam and sail. It was originally named the Windsor Castle but was launched on September 14, 1852, the same day the Duke of Wellington died, and renamed in his honor. Considered the most powerful warship in the world when completed, it was the flagship of Sir Charles Napier and saw service in the Baltic during the Crimean War. It was broken up in 1904.
