HSwMS Sölve monitor
|Fate:||Preserved at the Maritiman marine museum in Gothenburg, Sweden.|
|Displacement:||460 metric tons|
HSwMS Sölve is a monitor warship, built in 1875 at the Motala Warf in Norrköping, Sweden, by John Ericsson and J. C. A. d'Ailly. It is one of the few monitors still in existence, and is currently moored at the Maritiman marine museum in Gothenburg, Sweden.
The vessel was one of the last of the 15 Swedish monitors to be built for use by the Swedish Navy, and was named for Sölve, a semi-legendary King of Sweden. In 1919 the ship was placed on the sale list. It was converted into a tank barge in 1921 and was donated to the Maritiman marine museum by a scrapping shipyard after being retired from service.
