The Bismarck was a 2nd World War Battleship not a First World War battleship. You are getting the ship confused with the man: "Otto Von Bismarck" after whom the battleship was named. Bismarck was the Minister President of the Kingdom of Prussia, who then became the First Chancellor of the German Empire.

To answer your question here's a map of where the Bismarck was sunk.

Who had the Bismarck ship World War 2?

The battle cruiser Bismarck was a German fast battleship and was intended to be a commerce raider, sinking merchant vessels bringing American war material to England. It made a single sortie into the North Atlantic, sinking the British battleship HMS Hood, but receiving minor damage from the HMS Prince of Wales. The commander of the Bismarck knew that most of the Royal Navy was hunting for them, so he chose to make a high-speed run to the French port of Brest. They didn't make it. The aircraft carrier HMS Ark Royal launched a wave of Swordfish aircraft against the Bismarck. In what must have been the luckiest shot of World War 2, an air-dropped torpedo struck the stern of the Bismarck and apparently jammed its rudder, and the ship began to steer in circles. This delay allowed the British fleet to catch up with and sink the Bismarck.
