SMS Emden was a light cruiser of the German navy. Her raiding cruise in the second half of 1914 was one of the most romanticised incidents of World War I. The Emden raided Allied shipping in the Indian Ocean, sinking or capturing thirty Allied merchant vessels and warships before being run aground by her captain to prevent her from sinking, after engaging HMAS Sydney at the Battle of Cocos.
