As I understand it, HMS New Zealand was a battle cruiser and was engaged at 'Jutland', was the HMS Zealandia a different ship or the former renamed.

Zealandia was an Edward VII-class pre-dreadnought battleship, originally named New Zealand, but renamed Zealandia in 1911 in order to free up the name for the new battlecruiser HMS New Zealand.

Thanks SG,

I had read that there was some renaming involved, but I wasn't sure if it was the B.Cruiser that was later renamed, that's cleared up.
