Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse (Ger. orth. Kaiser Wilhelm der Große) was a German transatlantic ocean liner named after Wilhelm I, German Emperor, the first head of state of the German Empire.

The liner was constructed in Stettin (now Szczecin, Poland) for the North German Lloyd (NDL), and entered service in 1897. It was the first liner to have four funnels and is considered to be the first "superliner."[2] The first of four sister ships built between 1903 and 1907 by NDL (the others being SS Kronprinz Wilhelm, SS Kaiser Wilhelm II and SS Kronprinzessin Cecilie),
she marked the beginning of a change in the way maritime supremacy was
demonstrated in Europe at the beginning of the 20th century.

The ship began a new era in ocean travel and the novelty of having
four funnels was quickly associated with size, strength, speed and above
all luxury. Quickly established on the Atlantic, she gained the Blue Riband for Germany, a notable prize for the fastest trip from Europe to America which had been previously dominated by the British.

In 1900, she was involved in a fire in the port of New York which resulted in several deaths. She was also the victim of a naval ram in the French port of Cherbourg
in 1906. With the advent of her sister ships, she was modified to an
all-third-class ship to take advantage of the lucrative immigrant market
travelling to the United States.

Converted into an auxiliary cruiser
during World War I, she was given orders to capture and destroy enemy
ships within the first months of the war. Relatively successful, she
destroyed several enemy ships before eventually being defeated in the Battle of Río de Oro by the British cruiser HMS Highflyer and scuttled by her crew. Her wreck was discovered in 1952 and dismantled.

The NDL, owner of the Kaiser Wilhelm der Große, had a contract with American companies so they were allowed to transfer passangers to the US. So on the foremast was always the flag of the to visiting country, in this case the USA.
