Geschichte

Die Czar, ein Schiff der Russian American Line

Die Russian American Line wurde im Jahr 1900 von dem dänischen Handelsunternehmen Det Østasiatiske Kompagni (East Asiatic Company) mit Sitz in Kopenhagen gegründet, um eine Basis für den Handelsverkehr zwischen Russland und dem Fernen Osten zu schaffen. Nach dem Russisch-Japanischen Krieg erwarb die Holland-America Line große Anteile an der Russian American Line, was ab 1906 zu einem gemeinsamen Liniendienst von Libau über Rotterdam nach New York führte.

Nach der Februarrevolution 1917 stellte die Reederei ihren Dienst ein und die Schiffe wurden verkauft, hauptsächlich an die Baltic America Line.
