Sir Edward Reed , chief designer for Armstrong Whitworth , was in Chile for health reasons at the time, and met with Chilean Navy officials to discuss the idea of purchasing or building two battleships with high speed and a powerful armament on a low displacement.
Purchase of existing ships was not a practical option, so the Chileans asked Reed to design the ships for construction in the UK. Considered second-class battleships, Chile had required the ships to fit into the graving dock at Talcahuano , so they had to be longer and narrower for their displacement than ships built to British standards. Details in mast and anchor arrangements as well as the arrangement of magazines and shell-handling rooms also were different from British standards.
As part of the Pacts of May , which ended the near-war tensions between Argentina and Chile, Argentina sold its two armoured cruisers that were under construction in Italy to Japan.
As a result, in Chile also put its battleships up for sale. While the United Kingdom was not entirely interested in the ships, international politics took precedence: when the Russian Empire made an offer for the ships, the British grew concerned that the ships could be used against their new ally Japan.
