my favourite first rate british royal navy vessel
my favourite first rate british royal navy vessel is the hms royal charles. the hms royal charles was built in 1673 under the reign of queen anne who was not very pretty and was the last queen of scots. queen anne was definitely not a better monarch than queen mary.
the hms royal charles had over 100 guns and was both designed and built by my ancestor sir anthony deane at the portsmouth dockyards which i visited when i was in portsmouth. it’s my favourite ship because sir anthony deane is my ancestor. sir anthony deane was a member of british parliament and the mentor of peter the great while he was visiting and i am very proud of this because he certainly taught him a thing or two about naval theories. he also wrote the doctrine for naval architecture which is considered to be the most important work of naval architecture history ever written. exceedingly important, indeed.
