HISTORY OF THE MOST POWERFUL SHIP OF THE LINE IN THE WORLD, THE ONLY ONE THAT REMAINS AS IT WAS
Today, it is on dock in the port of Portsmouth (Hampshire) in England as a museum piece. The English ship HMS Victory remains the flagship of the Second Lord of the Sea. It is even more important because it is the only ship of the line that has survived to this day in conditions faithful to the originals.
HMS Victory was launched in 1765. The rest of the works such as the rigging, the sails and the armament were progressively completed until in 1778 the ship of the line could be in active service.
Two years after being assigned to command HMS Victory, vice admiral Horatio Nelson participated in the Battle of Trafalgar. The most decisive of the Napoleonic Wars. It was the one that put an end to the French and Spanish navies. The United Kingdom would assume a maritime supremacy that would last until the Second World War.
However, Nelson did not have the opportunity to learn of his victory. He died during the battle in the course of a close combat with the Redoutable, a large French ship with 74 guns. From the tops of the Redoutable, a marksman then reached Nelson.
Now you can remember history by building the section of one of the most important ships in history! The HMS Victory model ship cross-section.
