Launched at Brest in 1790 as the Suffren, she was renamed  in 1793 and became the Redoutable.  She was famous for the fight she put up at Trafalgar against Victory and  Temeraire .  She was probably the best handled ship in the allied fleet but was taken at Trafalgar and sank in the storm after the battle taking many of her crew with her.
