On the 19th July 1545, the Mary Rose - second largest ship of Henry VIII's fleet - set sail from Spithead to challenge the French invaders. In full view of the King and his assembled forces, the great ship capsized taking with her almost 700 men.More than four centuries later, in 1982, her hull was successfully raised from the seabed. The Mary Rose now rests, restored, only a short distance from Lord Nelson's flagship HMS Victory in Portsmouth's naval dockyard.
