The exact launch date of the Flagship of the French fleet, SOLEIL ROYAL with its 104 cannons, is a matter of controversy. Many historians say 1690 whilst others are of the opinion that she was engaged in combat in the Mediterranean Sea as early as the 1670's. She was after King Louis XIV, Soleil Royal was the symbol of grace and ability. As the flagship of the French Navy, Soleil Royal was sumptuously decorated with wooden carvings symbolic of the French monarch.
In 1692, Soleil Royal was hauled up onto the beach at Cherbourg for repairs. At port, it was a defenseless target for the Dutch and British attack on June 2nd and 3rd. The loss Soleil Royal--the most impressive tall ship that France ever built, together with 18 others, was the most serious naval setback for France in the 17th century. Today, Soleil Royal remains France’s cry of courage.
