This ship was built by Earle's Shipbuilding Co., of Hull, of Glasgow, as the Wilson's & Furness-Leyland Line's Cleopatra. After she launched in April 1898, she was acquired, with her sisters (Alexandra/Menominee, Boadicea/Marquette, Victoria/Manitou and Winifreda/Mesaba) by Atlantic Transport and made her maiden voyage on ATL's London-New York service on 31 July 1898. She made that trip under her original name, and was subsequently renamed Mohegan.

On 13 October 1898, Mohegan left London, bound for New York. The next day she was wrecked on the Manacles, off the coast of Cornwall, with 106 fatalities.
