HMS 'Royal Prince' and other vessels at the Four Days Battle, 1-4 June 1666
This battle shows one of several naval engagements in the North Sea during the Second Dutch War, 1665-1667, one of three trade wars between the British and the Dutch between 1652 and 1673. In this incident the Duke of Albermarle, as Admiral of the Fleet, with only a part of the English fleet, attacked the whole Dutch fleet under the Dutch Lieutenant-Admiral Michiel de Ruyter. Prominent in the foreground to the left is the stern of de Ruyter's ship 'De Zeven Provincien', 80 guns, flying the Dutch flag from the mainmast together with her squadron pennant. The stern is decorated with the lion emblem of the Dutch Republic, surrounded by the armorial bearings of the provinces. The date 'Anno 1665', inscribed on the rail, refers to the year the ship was launched.
