Thank you. The second ship is reflected as wrecked in 1684. Was there then a 3rd? -- "Michael Bille (1680-1756) ... In 1708 Bille was again in the service of the Royal Dutch Navy for a short while. On his journey to Holland his vessel had been “visited” by pirates who took whatsoever they wanted.[2][Note 1] On return, after serving on the 50-gun Stiernen, Bille became captain of the frigate Ørnen[3] in the Baltic on whose cruise he reported in September 1709.[2] Operating near the island of Bornholm he took several prizes in the Great Northern War ... " (I do not see, however, a citation on the source of this information on the Stiernen.) The source of this text is the Wikiwand Dot Com page on Michael Bille.

Not the same ship, there was a second Stiernen in Danish service from 1678-1684. You can find it using the ship search.

The following source appears to indicate that the Stiernen was still being used in 1679, at the close of the Scanian War, apparently with Ove Ovesen (Offue Offuesen) as skipper: QUOTE (index item): Pedersen, Berent, "skall niude Lieutenants Aars-Tieneris Tractement" fra primo May 1679 på fregetten STIERNEN (chef Ofue Ofuesen) (se s. 283) - Rigsarkivet ADM 219, Fol 255a-255b.
(I do not know Danish and cannot understand what this means. If anyone can tell me, I would appreciate it> The skipped was noted the following year working for the Danish West India Guinea Company (on the Havmanden, it's last complete voyage.)
