In the course of an assault on Tenerife, a grapeshot shattered his right elbow, and back in his flagship the arm was amputated. In the spring of Nelson was fit enough to rejoin the Earl of St.

Vincent, who assigned him to watch a French fleet waiting to embark an expeditionary force. Cruising off the port in his flagship, the Vanguard, Nelson was struck by a violent northwesterly gale that blew his squadron off station and carried the French well on their way to their destination, Egypt.

The British set out in pursuit, Nelson believing that the French were going either to Sicily or Egypt.

After a somewhat confused chase the British caught up with the French squadron in the harbour at Alexandria, near the mouth of the Nile, on August 1, With the French ships immobilized, the attacking British ships could anchor and concentrate their fire on each enemy before moving on to demolish their next target.

Its outcome never in doubt from its beginning at sunset, the battle raged all night. By dawn on August 2, the French squadron had been all but annihilated.

The strategic consequences of the Battle of the Nile were immense, and Nelson took immediate steps to broadcast the news throughout the Mediterranean as well as hastening it to London.

Nelson was made a baron in recognition of his victory at the Battle of the Nile. A prolonged British naval presence in Naples was useful in supporting the shaky military strength of King Ferdinand , the one major ruler in Italy to be resisting the southward march of the French, who had already taken Rome and deposed the pope.

The love affair that developed between Nelson and Emma Hamilton came at a time of crisis. Not only was this a disastrous failure but the French counteroffensive drove him back to Naples, which itself then fell.

Nelson had to evacuate the Neapolitan royal family to Sicily, and at Palermo it became obvious to all that his infatuation with Emma Hamilton was complete.

She had proved herself indispensable company to him. Nelson was ordered to that island with all available ships but refused on the grounds that he expected the threat to be toward Naples.

Events justified him, but to disobey orders so blatantly was unforgivable. The Admiralty, also angered by his acceptance of the dukedom of Bronte in Sicily from King Ferdinand, sent him an icy order to return home.

In he returned, but across the continent in company with the Hamiltons. Nelson was promoted to vice admiral in January Emma was pregnant by him when he was appointed second in command to the elderly admiral Sir Hyde Parker, who was to command an expedition to the Baltic.

Shortly before sailing, Nelson heard that Emma had borne him a daughter named Horatia. The next morning, April 2, he led his squadron into action.

There was to be no room for tactical brilliance; only superior gunnery would tell. The Danes resisted bravely, and Parker, fearing that Nelson was suffering unacceptable losses, hoisted the signal to disengage.

Nelson disregarded it, and, an hour later, victory was his; the Danish ships lay shattered and silent, their losses amounting to some 6, dead and wounded, six times heavier than those of the British.

Before this success could be followed by similar attacks on the other potential enemies, Tsar Paul of Russia died and the threat faded.

Parker was succeeded by Nelson, who at last became a commander in chief. He was also made a viscount. The Admiralty, well aware of his popular appeal, now made maximum use of it by giving him a home command.

At once he planned an ambitious attack on the naval base of Boulogne in order to foil a possible French invasion. He did not take part himself, and the operation was a gory failure.

A second attempt was abandoned because of peace negotiations with France, and in March the Treaty of Amiens was signed. At last there was time to enjoy the fruits of his victories.

At last her husband rebelled, but it was too late for change, and he appeared reconciled to his lot when, early in , he died with his wife and her lover at his side.

Bonaparte was known to be preparing for renewed war, and, two days before it broke out, Nelson, in May , was given command in the Mediterranean, hoisting his flag in the Victory.

A combined force of that size could well enable Bonaparte to invade England; and in early , Napoleon, who the previous year had crowned himself emperor, ordered the fleets to converge for this purpose.

The French and Spanish squadrons were to burst through the British blockade; run for the West Indies; and after ravaging British possessions and trade, return across the Atlantic in a single invincible fleet to destroy the British near Ushant, an island off Brittany, and take control of the English Channel while it was crossed by an invading army of , In March, Admiral Pierre Villeneuve , who was to be in overall command, broke out of Toulon under cover of bad weather and disappeared.

The weather, however, suddenly turned calm following a week of gales. This slowed the progress of the fleet leaving the harbour, giving the British plenty of warning.

Villeneuve had drawn up plans to form a force of four squadrons, each containing both French and Spanish ships. It took most of 20 October for Villeneuve to get his fleet organised; it eventually set sail in three columns for the Straits of Gibraltar to the southeast.

That same evening, Achille spotted a force of 18 British ships of the line in pursuit. The fleet began to prepare for battle and during the night, they were ordered into a single line.

The following day, Nelson's fleet of 27 ships of the line and four frigates was spotted in pursuit from the northwest with the wind behind it.

Villeneuve again ordered his fleet into three columns, but soon changed his mind and ordered a single line. The result was a sprawling, uneven formation.

This reversed the order of the allied line, placing the rear division under Rear-Admiral Pierre Dumanoir le Pelley in the vanguard.

The wind became contrary at this point, often shifting direction. The very light wind rendered manoeuvring virtually impossible for all but the most expert seamen.

The inexperienced crews had difficulty with the changing conditions, and it took nearly an hour and a half for Villeneuve's order to be completed.

The French and Spanish fleet now formed an uneven, angular crescent, with the slower ships generally to leeward and closer to the shore.

Nelson's entire fleet was visible to Villeneuve, drawn up in two parallel columns. The two fleets would be within range of each other within an hour.

Villeneuve was concerned at this point about forming up a line, as his ships were unevenly spaced and in an irregular formation.

As the British drew closer, they could see that the enemy was not sailing in a tight order, but rather in irregular groups. Nelson could not immediately make out the French flagship as the French and Spanish were not flying command pennants.

Nelson was outnumbered and outgunned, the enemy totalling nearly 30, men and 2, guns to his 17, men and 2, guns.

The Franco-Spanish fleet also had six more ships of the line, and so could more readily combine their fire. There was no way for some of Nelson's ships to avoid being "doubled on" or even "trebled on".

As the two fleets drew closer, anxiety began to build among officers and sailors; one British sailor described the time before thus: The battle progressed largely according to Nelson's plan.

His Lordship came to me on the poop , and after ordering certain signals to be made, about a quarter to noon, he said, "Mr.

The term "England" was widely used at the time to refer to the United Kingdom; the British fleet included significant contingents from Ireland, Scotland, and Wales.

Unlike the photographic depiction right , this signal would have been shown on the mizzen mast only and would have required 12 lifts.

As the battle opened, the French and Spanish were in a ragged curved line headed north. As planned, the British fleet was approaching the Franco-Spanish line in two columns.

Leading the northern, windward column in Victory was Nelson, while Collingwood in the gun Royal Sovereign led the second, leeward, column.

The two British columns approached from the west at nearly a right angle to the allied line. Nelson led his column into a feint toward the van of the Franco-Spanish fleet and then abruptly turned toward the actual point of attack.

Collingwood altered the course of his column slightly so that the two lines converged at this line of attack. Just before his column engaged the allied forces, Collingwood said to his officers: At noon, Villeneuve sent the signal "engage the enemy", and Fougueux fired her first trial shot at Royal Sovereign.

As she approached the allied line, she came under fire from Fougueux , Indomptable , San Justo , and San Leandro , before breaking the line just astern of Admiral Alava's flagship Santa Ana , into which she fired a devastating double-shotted raking broadside.

Victory could not yet respond. Villeneuve thought that boarding would take place, and with the Eagle of his ship in hand, told his men, "I will throw it onto the enemy ship and we will take it back there!

The crew of Redoutable , which included a strong infantry corps with three captains and four lieutenants , gathered for an attempt to board and seize Victory.

A musket bullet fired from the mizzentop of Redoutable struck Nelson in the left shoulder, passed through his spine at the sixth and seventh thoracic vertebrae, and lodged two inches below his right scapula in the muscles of his back.

Nelson exclaimed, "They finally succeeded, I am dead. Victory' s gunners were called on deck to fight boarders, and she ceased firing. The gunners were forced back below decks by French grenades.

As the French were preparing to board Victory , Temeraire , the second ship in the British windward column, approached from the starboard bow of Redoutable and fired on the exposed French crew with a carronade , causing many casualties.

As more and more British ships entered the battle, the ships of the allied centre and rear were gradually overwhelmed.

The allied van, after long remaining quiescent, made a futile demonstration and then sailed away. The British took 22 vessels of the Franco-Spanish fleet and lost none.

As Nelson lay dying, he ordered the fleet to anchor, as a storm was predicted. However, when the storm blew up, many of the severely damaged ships sank or ran aground on the shoals.

Surgeon William Beatty heard Nelson murmur, "Thank God I have done my duty"; when he returned, Nelson's voice had faded, and his pulse was very weak.

Nelson's chaplain, Alexander Scott , who remained by Nelson as he died, recorded his last words as "God and my country.

Nelson died at half-past four, three hours after being hit. Towards the end of the battle, and with the combined fleet being overwhelmed, the still relatively un-engaged portion of the van under Rear-Admiral Dumanoir Le Pelley tried to come to the assistance of the collapsing centre.

After failing to fight his way through, he decided to break off the engagement, and led four French ships, his flagship the gun Formidable , the gun ships Scipion , Duguay Trouin and Mont Blanc away from the fighting.

He headed at first for the Straits of Gibraltar, intending to carry out Villeneuve's original orders and make for Toulon.

With a storm gathering in strength off the Spanish coast, he sailed westwards to clear Cape St Vincent , prior to heading north-west, swinging eastwards across the Bay of Biscay , and aiming to reach the French port at Rochefort.

The seriously wounded Admiral Gravina passed command of the remainder of the fleet over to Captain Julien Cosmao on 23 October.

From shore, the allied commanders could see an opportunity for a rescue mission existed. Cosmao claimed in his report that the rescue plan was entirely his idea, but Vice-Admiral Escano recorded a meeting of Spanish and French Commodores at which a planned rescue was discussed and agreed upon.

Enrique MacDonell and Cosmao were of equal rank and both raised commodore's pennants before hoisting anchor. Soon after leaving port, the wind shifted to west-southwest, raising a heavy sea with the result that most of the British prizes broke their tow ropes, and drifting far to leeward , were only partially resecured.

The combined squadron came in sight at noon, causing Collingwood to summon his most battle-ready ships to meet the threat.

In doing so, he ordered them to cast off towing their prizes. He had formed a defensive line of ten ships by three o'clock in the afternoon and approached the Franco-Spanish squadron, covering the remainder of their prizes which stood out to sea.

Despite this initial success the Franco-Spanish force, hampered by battle damage, struggled in the heavy seas. Neptuno was eventually wrecked off Rota in the gale, while Santa Ana reached port.

There, she lost her masts; they had been damaged by shot earlier. Observing that some of the leewardmost of the prizes were escaping towards the Spanish coast, Leviathan asked for and was granted permission by Collingwood to try to retrieve the prizes and bring them to anchor.

The shot fell between Monarca and Rayo. The latter, conceiving that it was probably intended for her, hauled down her colours, and was taken by HMS Donegal , who anchored alongside and took off the prisoners.

On boarding her, her British captors found that she was in a sinking state, and so removed the British prize crew, and nearly all of her original Spanish crew members.

The nearly empty Monarca parted her cable and was wrecked during the night. Despite the efforts of her British prize crew, Rayo was driven onshore on 26 October and wrecked, with the loss of twenty-five men.

The remainder of the prize crew were made prisoners by the Spanish. The condition of our own ships was such that it was very doubtful what would be their fate.

Many a time I would have given the whole group of our capture, to ensure our own I can only say that in my life I never saw such efforts as were made to save these [prize] ships, and would rather fight another battle than pass through such a week as followed it.

On balance, the allied counter-attack achieved little. In forcing the British to suspend their repairs to defend themselves, it influenced Collingwood's decision to sink or set fire to the most damaged of his remaining prizes.

Spanish military garrisons and civilians set out to rescue survivors from the numerous shipwrecks scattered along the Andalusian coast.

British prize crews were captured and given good treatment. The governor and Gravina offered in exchange to release their British prisoners, who boarded the British fleet.

The French would later join this humanitarian agreement. When Rosily arrived in Cadiz, he found only five French ships, rather than the 18 he was expecting.

The surviving ships remained bottled up in Cadiz until when Napoleon invaded Spain. The French ships were then seized by the Spanish forces and put into service against France.

She put into Rosia Bay, Gibraltar and after emergency repairs were carried out, returned to Britain. Many of the injured crew were brought ashore at Gibraltar and treated in the Naval Hospital.

Men who subsequently died from injuries sustained at the battle are buried in or near the Trafalgar Cemetery , at the south end of Main Street, Gibraltar.

He had tight control over the Paris media and kept the defeat a closely guarded secret for over a month, at which point newspapers proclaimed it to have been a tremendous victory.

Vice-Admiral Villeneuve was taken prisoner aboard his flagship and taken back to Britain. After his parole in , he returned to France, where he was found dead in his inn room during a stop on the way to Paris, with six stab wounds in the chest from a dining knife.

It was officially recorded that he had committed suicide. Despite the British victory over the Franco-Spanish navies, Trafalgar had negligible impact on the remainder of the War of the Third Coalition.

Less than two months later, Napoleon decisively defeated the Third Coalition at the Battle of Austerlitz , knocking Austria out of the war and forcing the dissolution of the Holy Roman Empire.

Although Trafalgar meant France could no longer challenge Britain at sea, Napoleon proceeded to establish the Continental System in an attempt to deny Britain trade with the continent.

He married Frances Nisbet in in Nevis, and returned to England with his bride to spend the next five years on half-pay, frustrated at the lack of a command.

He served in the Mediterranean, helped capture Corsica and saw battle at Calvi where he lost the sight in his right eye.

He would later lose his right arm at the Battle of Santa Cruz de Tenerife in As a commander he was known for bold action, and the occasional disregard of orders from his seniors.

This defiance brought him victories against the Spanish off Cape Vincent in , and at the Battle of Copenhagen four years later, where he ignored orders to cease action by putting his telescope to his blind eye and claiming he couldn't seen the signal to withdraw.

At the Battle of the Nile in , he successfully destroyed Napoleon's fleet and thus his bid for a direct trade route to India. Nelson's next posting took him to Naples, where he fell in love with Emma, Lady Hamilton.
