~H.M.S Sovereign of the seas~

Is and was a 1st rate ship of the line that was built in 1637. She was larger and more powerful than any other ship of her time.  She sailed with 800 men, and her hundred + guns could fire a broadside of more than a ton of metal. In 1634, Charles I had asked the great English shipbuilder Phineas Pett to build of a great new ship as part of his overall effort to improve and expand England’s navy. Built at a cost of £65,586 – about ten 40-gun ships could have been built for the same amount –

the Sovereign of the seas was intended as an instrument of propaganda as well as war. She was the Royal Navy’s most lavishly ornamented vessel. To demonstrate this you only need to look at the money, a tenth of the budget was solely for all the gold on the ship, and a new tax had to be put in place in order to build it, which plunged england ito a financial crisis! Talk about arrogance...
In 1660 she was rebuilt and renamed Royal Sovereign. And in 1696 a misplaced candle caused her quite a miserable burning fate.

I'v researched this vessel quite a lot and have tried my best to imitate it as far as minecrafty possible, but since the ship existed some 400 years ago, there is not much to go on other than crafted models and some misleading paintings... Even the colortheme is pretty debated, but I went with the most commonly used and described; oak hull with golden decorations over black painted wood.
