My favourite line of old battleships are the eight predreadnoughts that came into service at the height of the Grand Fleet and the Edwardian era. Led by flagship HMS King Edward VII, there were HMS Britannia (Great Britain), HMS Hibernia (Ireland), HMS Dominion (Canada), HMS Commonwealth (Australia), HMS Hindustan (Empire of India), HMS Africa, and HMS New Zealand.
Ah, the Fraternity-class! Sadly it was not to last as around the time of King Edward's death, the major components of Britain's overseas empire began to assert their own military independence - not because they wanted to but because they were being beggared by Britain to fund their fair share of the security costs. So instead of sending cheques to London to pay for "HMS Canada" or HMS Whatever of the Royal Navy, by 1910 you got in the case of the elder dominion, Laurier's "Tin Pot Navy", which got mercilessly mocked by pro-imperial Canadian Tories.
The dominions may have been going wobbly on imperial defence, but that is not how the King Edward VII and her seven shipworthy sisters earned the sobriquet "The Wobbly Eight". They were nicknamed so during the First World War because they couldn't steer a straight line, which by that time were so outclassed by the new dreadnoughts they were given the inglorious task of steaming at the heads of divisions, where they could protect the far more valuable dreadnoughts by watching for mines or by being the first to strike them. This is how the King Edward VII met her fate in January 1916.
As for the rest of the wobbly eight, HMS Britannia was torpedoed in 1918 and the remainder were sold for scrap in 1921.
