She was the third of four König class battleship built, weighing 25,388 tons and having a length of 175 m, 30 m at the beam and a draft of 9 m. She was powered by three turbines developing 46,000 hp (34 MW) each yielding a maximum speed of 22 knots. Her armament consisted of ten 305 mm guns, fourteen 150 mm guns, six 85 mm guns and five 500 mm torpedo tubes. She carried a crew of 1136 men and officers.
