Téméraire an English battleship, named after a captured French ship (the word in French means ‘bold’ or ‘rash’), which was built in 1798. She took part in the battle of Trafalgar (1805), where she was the second ship of the line, closely following the Victory; her share in the action was considered notable. The Téméraire was broken up in 1838; her final journey was the subject of one of Turner's most famous paintings, The Fighting Téméraire (1838), and of a poem by Newbolt.
