Prinz Friedrich Wilhelm was built in 1908 for Nord-deutscher Lloyd. She was ceded to Canadian Pacific in 1920 as part of war reparations. 1921 she was re-named Empress of China, later Empress of India. In 1922 she was again re-named Montlaurier, and in 1925 re-named twice more to Monteith and Montnairn. She was scrapped in 1929. It looks as though CPR did not have much use for her and just put her down the scale. In 1920 she would still have been doing her "wartime reparations" thing, not fully owned by CPR, and someone in the government just wanted an extra ship to send to Bombay. Take a look at "theshipslist" and "shipnostalgia" - plenty of details on almost anything that floated. Good luck.
