The Santa Ana was built at El-Ferrol (Spain) in 1774. She was the prototype of a series of 8 ships and carried 112 guns. In Trafalgar (1805), she fought against the Royal Sovereign. After more than 3 hours of fighting, with over 100 men killed, her rigging destroyed and surrounded by many British ships, she surrendered. But, during the heavy storm that followed the battle, her crew seized her and the Santa Ana was able to return to Cadiz (Spain).
