SMS Grosser Kurf├╝rst was the second battleship of the four-ship K├Ânig class. Grosser Kurf├╝rst served in the German Imperial Navy during World War I. The battleship was laid down in October 1911 and launched on 5 May 1913. She was formally commissioned into the Imperial Navy on 30 July 1914, days before the outbreak of war between Germany and the United Kingdom. Grosser Kurf├╝rst was armed with ten 30.5-centimeter guns in five twin turrets and could steam at a top speed of 21 knots (39 km/h 24 mph).
Along with her three sister ships, K├Ânig, Markgraf, and Kronprinz, Grosser Kurf├╝rst took part in most of the fleet actions during the war, including the Battle of Jutland on 31 May and 1 June 1916. The ship was subjected to heavy fire at Jutland, but was not seriously damaged. She shelled Russian positions during Operation Albion in September and October 1917.
