History of the HMS Bellona

The HMS Bellona was a 74-gun third-rate used in the Napoleonic wars and built at Chatham, launched in 1760. The Bellona was tasked to join the squadron blockading Brest during the Seven Years War. HMS Bellona was used on the Tagus River in Spain. The HMS Bellona engaged the French 74-gun ship Courageux in company with two frigates. The HMS Bellona eventually took on the Courageux. The frigates escaped, but the Courageux struck her colors, and was later re-fitted and used by the Royal Navy. In 1762 Bellona was paid off. She was used in the American Revolutionary War after she had been coppered. Until 1783 HMS Bellona served in the North Sea and the West Indies. In 1801 HMS Bellona served under Nelson in the Battle of Copenhagen. She also served in the North Sea and Bay of Biscay until 1814, when she paid off for the last time and broken up.
