The 20th Century
The Royal Louis was a first-rate 116-guns ship of the line of the Royal French Navy, built in 1757-1759 by Jacques-Luc Coulomb at Brest. She was the fourth ship to bear the name, and the only ship of the Sans-Pareil design ever built.
In 1771, when in dry dock, she was damaged beyond repair and eventually demolished in 1772.
Our model represents the Royal Louis according to the plans of 1779, when she was Admiral-Ship of the Blue and White Squadron, being part of the American Squadron, also called Earl d’Estaings.
