Germany didn't even exist until 1871. Those ships are probably from Prussia. Italy was also first unified in 1859.

I'm planning to visit the  Swedish Maritime museum in the next couple of weeks.

I spoke with them earlier and they will help me check the microfilm archives for blueprints. There is still alot of documents who hasnt been scanned yet.  The ships i'm focusing on atm are Konung Karl, Wasa, Göta Lejon , Gustaf III and Amarant.  I can check if they have anything on Kronan also. If they have any i will get the blueprints and have them scanned.

 

It there any other ship that could be of interest?

Well, there aint alot online about the Hemmema frigates, i have thought myself of contacting them about Kronan and one of the larger Hemmemas.

But it would be good if you could.

The best i could find after a quick search was 1600-1830 hard limit though 1690-1790 preferred.

Which means Kronan is just barely outside the preferred.

Yes! USS Bonhomme Richard, a ship that was given to a relative of mine, even though he managed to lose her in battle :)

check this thred out!

Queen annes revenge was not a three decker. No pirate could ever afford to run such a big ship.

She originally was a tradeship wich was upgunned to 40 cannons.

 

So either that homepage did mess up the previews of they didnt do the research.

I am at least happy you didnt mean the "PoC ship". Hollywood really messes history up :D
