Service during the War
In 1755, she took part to the expedition to reinforce Canada and more particularly Louisbourg. For this campaign, she was armed as a "flute", her armament being reduced to 24 guns. She transported the grenadier company and 3 other companies of Artois Infanterie and 3 companies of Bourgogne Infanterie.
After disembarking the troops, the ship sailed back to France but was intercepted on November 11 by 4 British ships. After a 3 hours fight, she surrendered. However, she was too crippled after this fierce fight and sank on November 15.
