Service

Conqueror participated in the Annual Manoeuvres of 1890 under the command of Captain Henry J. Carr as part of the Hostile Fleet tasked with threatening British trade routes.[7]

In early 1891 she was a tender to Cambridge at Devonport.[8]

Two Mark IV 6-in guns were brought aboard in Devonport on 25 January 1892, though they were still awaiting their mountings. They were to replace two Mark I models similar to one which had burst aboard Cordelia.[9]
