HMS Aboukir was a 90-gun second-rate ship of the line of the Royal Navy launched in 1848. The navy refitted her with screw propulsion in 1858 and sold her in 1877. Four ships of the Royal Navy have borne the name HMS Aboukir, after Abu Qir Bay, the site of the Battle of the Nile. This was the 3rd. More on HMS Aboukir

I search Art History for Beautiful works that may, or may not, have a secondary or unexpected story to tell. I then write short summaries that grow from my research. Art work is so much more when its secrets are exposed
