The Téméraire Class ships is the most numerous class of
capital ships ever built, with 67 built between 1782 and
1824 for the French navy. These third-rate, 74-guns ships
had a designed crew of 700. They were armed with 28
36-Pounder guns in the lower deck, 30 18-Pounder guns in
the upperdeck, and 16 8-Pounder guns in the quarterdeck
and in the forecastle.
The Commerce de Bordeaux was funded
by a ‚¬Å“don des vaisseaux ‚¬Å“ (fundraising)
donation from Bordeaux. She was
laid dawn in 1784 and acquired
in 1785. Renamed Timoléon
in 1794, she took part in the
Battle of the Nile under
Captain Louis-Léonce
Trullet, and was the last
fighting French ship of the
battle, exploding after three
days, on August 2nd.
