Built during the reign of King James I under the auspices of Henry, Prince of Wales, the Prince Royal was the largest English ship of its day. She was lavishly decorated and the pride of the English fleet. Henry's initials 'H.P.' appeared on the side with decorations of his Prince of Wales's feathers and she carried St George, England's patron saint, as her figurehead. Henry never saw the completed ship since he died before the ship came off the docks. Prince Royal may have been inspired by the earlier Tre Kroner.
