Vice Admiral Bernhard Gustav Rösing, (29 October 1866, New York – 10 January 1947, Kiel) was a flag officer of the Kaiserliche Marine during the World War I. Rösing commanded SMS Scharnhorst from November 1911 to December 1912 and SMS Kronprinz from November 1916 to November 1918.
Rösing was born on 29 October 1869 in New York. He was the third of eight children of the lawyer and diplomat Dr Johannes Rösing (1833-1907) and his wife Clara, née von Ammon. After receiving his Abitur in Berlin, he joined the Kaiserliche Marine (Imperial Navy) in 1888. Following his attendance of the Naval Academy in Kiel he progressed in rank from midshipmen, to the lieutenant ranks, to captain, and admiral. From 1908 he worked in the Naval Office (Reichsmarineamt) in Berlin. The marriage with the architect's daughter and the Naval officer Rudolf von Eickstedt's stepdaughter Elfriede Wünsche (1882–1961) produced one daughter (Elfriede) and four sons (Haro, Bernhard, Kurt-Wolf, Friedrich Wilhelm), three of which were killed in action in World War II. After the war he was commissioned to dissolve the imperial shipyard in Danzig.
