This shows the only fleet action fought at sea during the War of the Spanish Succession, 1701–1714 and it was inconclusive. Each fleet included 51 ships of the line and the action was fought in strict line order. The Anglo-Dutch commander-in-chief was Sir George Rooke and his Franco-Spanish opposite number was the Comte de Toulouse, a bastard son of Louis XIV. In the left foreground the French flagship, the 'Foudroyant', 104 guns, in starboard-quarter view, is closely engaged to starboard with Rooke in the 'Royal Katherine', 90 guns.
