The armoured frigate HDMS Peder Skram

The keel of the armoured frigate, HDMS Peder Skram was laid down at the Naval Shipyard on May 19th 1859. Peder Skram being propelled by steam was a larger version of the frigate Jylland, which was built two years earlier. The Frigate was the fourth and largest of the Navy's propeller frigates - a full rigged wooden steamship of 3,380 tons, a speed of 11 knots, six 20.3 cm and eight 15.2 cm guns. The Frigate was constructed by Otto Frederik Suenson, who in 1858 became factory manager of the Naval Shipyard.

The armoured frigate Peder Skram started as frigate with steam engines.

 

Inspired by the building programs in France and England, the Danish specialists in 1860 began discussing the use of armour on the warships. After the Battle of Hampton Roads in March 1862 (The American Civil War 1860-65) the supremacy of the armoured vessel was obvious, so it was decided to turn Peder Skram into an armoured frigate. At first the Naval Shipyard concentrated on completing the ship of the line, Dannebrog, but in the summer of 1863 the construction of Peder Skram was resumed. The steel plates were delivered from England and processed by Baumgarten & Burmeister, the company delivering the steam engine - the most powerful yet in any Danish warship. The hull was designed with an opening of the armour in the stern making it possible to move guns aft from the broadside, if a need should arise for firing astern. Launched from the Naval Shipyard on October 18th 1864 and commissioned on August 15th 1866.

Its first expedition was as to escort the Royal Yacht, the Slesvig, taking Princess Dagmar to St. Petersburg for her wedding to the Russian heir to the throne, Grand Duke Alexander. In 1867 Peder Skram made another voyage, this time to the British Naval Review at Spithead. In 1870 she for the first and only time joined the annual Summer Squadron, whereupon the Frigate was primarily used as a training ship for artillery personnel.

 

As early as in 1885 Peder Skram was laid up. Machinery and steel plates we removed, and some of the steel was re-used for the fortifications of Copenhagen. For a number of years Peder Skram was then used as a depot vessel and later target for artillery exercises. In 1897 she was finally scrapped.
