Flagship of Holly League during the battle of Lepanto in 1571.
Real, built in Barcelona at the Royal Shipyard, was the largest galley of its time and the flagship of Don Juan de Austria in the Battle of Lepanto in 1571, the largest battle between galleys in history, in which a fleet of the Holy League, an alliance of Christian powers of the Mediterranean, decisively defeated an Ottoman fleet under Grand Admiral (“Kaptan-ı Derya”) Müezzinzade Ali Pasha.
Befitting a royal flagship, it was luxuriously ornamented and painted in the red and gold colors of Spain. Its poop was elaborately carved and painted with numerous sculptures, bas-reliefs, paintings and other embellishments, most of them evoking religious and humanistic inspirational themes.
Does not come with tools, paint, glue, display stand or pedestals.
