The Téméraire Class is the most numerous class of capital ships ever built, with 67 built between 1782 and 1824 for the French navy. These third-rate, 74-guns ships had a designed crew of 700. They were armed with 28 36-Pounder guns in the lower deck, 30 18-Pounder guns in the upperdeck, and 16 8-Pounder guns in the quarterdeck and in the forecastle.
The Commerce de Bordeaux was funded by a "don des vaisseaux" (fundraising) donation from Bordeaux. She was laid dawn in 1784 and acquired in 1785. Renamed Timoléon in 1794, she took part in the Battle of the Nile under Captain Louis-Léonce Trullet, and was the last fighting French ship of the battle, exploding after three days, on August 2nd.
