Leda Class List

Leda Class List

The 49 frigates built for the Royal Navy on the lines of the Leda are listed below in alphabetical order.  In addition to the captured French frigate Hebe, from which the Leda class frigates were derived, Napoleon’s continental shipyards produced many more frigates to this design, and an attempt has also been made to list these below.  The total of some 114 frigates must represent one of the largest warship classes ever.
