Calm: HMS 'Royal Sovereign' with a Royal yacht in a light air

To the left is the 'Royal Sovereign' in starboard-quarter view and at anchor. The Royal Standard flies at the main, the Admiralty flag at the fore and the Union flag at the mizzen. She is firing a salute to port and a number of figures are visible on the deck and in the rigging. This 100-gun, first-rate ship was built by Fisher Harding at Woolwich Dockyard in 1701 and she can be identified by the large horse and rider on her taffrail, below the middle lantern. She was regarded as the greatest ship in the world and her decorations were elaborately carved - at such huge expense in fact that the Admiralty thereafter severely restricted the carving that ships were allowed to have, according to their importance.
Willem van de Velde, the Younger
