A Portuguese 'ship of the line', the Príncipe Real (of 1794). Having not read much about Portugal, I was amazed to learn that the Portuguese Empire conquered much of the 'known world' between (circa) 1400 to 1800. This included the Americas! Such warships were required by Portugal, to keep open their 'sea lanes'; as they carried out much international trade, particularly relating to that of spice. Armed with 90 cannons, she was a first-rate, that carried less guns than HMS Victory (who had 104).
