Description

Caldercraft Agamemnon

HMS Agamemnon was a 64-gun third-rate ship of the line of the Royal Navy. She was launched in 1781 and served in the navy for several decades, playing a significant role in various naval engagements and campaigns.

HMS Agamemnon is perhaps most famous for her participation in the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, where she was under the command of Captain Sir Edward Berry. During the battle, Agamemnon was part of the weather column and engaged in combat with several French and Spanish ships, including the Achille, Santa Ana, and Fougueux. Despite sustaining heavy damage, Agamemnon fought bravely and played a crucial role in securing victory for the British fleet.

After the Battle of Trafalgar, HMS Agamemnon continued to serve in the Royal Navy and was involved in other significant actions during the Napoleonic Wars. She was eventually decommissioned in 1855, after more than 70 years of service.

HMS Agamemnon is also notable for being the ship that carried Lord Nelson’s body back to England following his death at the Battle of Trafalgar. She played a ceremonial role in the funeral procession and was part of the somber and poignant events surrounding Nelson’s death and burial.

Overall, HMS Agamemnon had a long and storied career in the Royal Navy, serving with distinction in some of the most significant naval conflicts of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. She is remembered as a proud and gallant ship that played a vital role in upholding Britain’s naval supremacy during the Age of Sail.
