The London Gazette Mar 3, 1667 - This day was happily launched at Deptford, in presence of his Majesty, His Royal Highness Prince Rupert, and many persons of the court, a very large and well built ship, which is to carry 106 great guns, and is like to prove a ship of great force and excellent service, called Charles the Second.
