The 'Royal Prince' before the wind
This portrait of the 'Royal Prince', 100 guns, shows this English first-rate three-decker before the wind in starboard-broadside view. In 1694, it was rebuilt and renamed the 'Royal William'. The ship was the second of the name to fight in the Dutch Wars. She was built in 1670 and was the Duke of York's flagship at the Battle of Solebay in 1672, and in the following year was Sir Edmund Spragge's flagship as Admiral of the Blue Squadron at the two Battles of Schooneveld and the Battle of Texel.
