"Venus" was a Swedish frigate, designed by Fredrik Henrik af Chapman.
Venus was conquered by the Russians in 1789 in Oslofjord.
"Venus" was launched on 19 July 1783 in Karskrona. In 1786 she sailed to
Gothenburg where she was to be subordinated the local naval station, which
was commanded by Adolf Ulrik Sheldon. Three years later, on 1 June 1789,
while she was under the command of Major Magnus Hansson, and belonged to
the Gothenburg squadron, she was conquered by the Russians in a complicated
action that created an interesting legal and diplomatic aftermath.
The ship was taken over by the Russian Navy and participated in the battle
of Reval and in the battle of Vyborg Bay in 1790 under command
of the British Admiral Roman Crown. Venus visited Holland in 1795
and Great Britain in 1795–1797 and 1799–1800.
"Venus" served in the Adriatic Sea between 1805 and 1807 and in the
Aegean Sea in 1807. She was sold to the Kingdom of Naples in
Palermo to avoid capture by the British.
