Queen of Sweden - Web Tour

The Drottningen af Swerige, or ‘Queen of Sweden’, is a Swedish East Indiaman wrecked in 1745. The ship had left Gothenberg in Sweden and was on route to China when it hit a rock at the southern entrance to Lerwick harbour, Shetland and sank. The wreck was partially salvaged at the time of its wrecking and subsequently in the 1970’s, 90’s and more recently in 2016. The site is a well-known dive site enjoyed by local and visiting divers. Historic Environment Scotland (HES) has advised that the wreck meets the criterion of national importance for designation as a Historic MPA. It is arguably the best-preserved known wreck of a vessel of the Swedish East Indiaman in Scottish waters.
