The Royal Charles was the most powerful warship in the English fleet. The Dutch captured the vessel during the raid on the naval base at Chatham in June 1667 and moved it to the Dutch port of Hellevoetsluis. The English ship’s flag is lowered to signify its surrender. The ship’s ornamentally carved counter is on display in this gallery.
