Authorized under the Act of 19.7.1892. A ship of unusual appearance with pronounced tumblehome and three high funnels. The fore 203mm turret was at forecastle deck and the others at upper deck level with the supports for the wing turrets rising from the inward sloping side. Originally the forward and starboard wing turrets were electrically trained and the other two steam. Eight of the 127mm guns were in main deck sponsons and four at upper deck level with the foremost pair sponsoned under the forecastle.
The 76mm belt only covered the machinery spaces, and protection depended largely on the armour deck which was 76mm flat and 152mm on the slopes by the belt, and 64mm fore and aft. The barbettes were shallow 203-102mm rings with 76mm ammunition tubes.
