History of HMS PRINCE

 

The ship was launched 1670 in Chatham as a 1st rate with 100 cannon. HMS Prince was designed by Phineas Pett, a relative of the Phineas Pett who built the famous Sovereign of the Seas in 1637. She took part in the Battle of Solebay 1672 during the Third Anglo-Dutch War.

 
In the London Science Museum one can have a look at a contemporary dockyard model of the ship.
