HMS Agamemnon was a 64-gun third-rateship of the line of the British Royal Navy. She saw service in the American Revolutionary War, French Revolutionary and Napolionic Wars, and fought in many of the major naval battles of those conflicts. She is remembered as being Nelson's favourite ship, and was named after the mythical ancient Greek king Agamemnon, being the first ship of the Royal Navy to bear the name.
