The Battle of Trafalgar, a deciding naval battle of the Napoleonic Wars, was fought 21 Oct 1805. Twenty-seven British ships under Admiral Nelson, with no loses and thirty-three French and Spanish vessels with eighteen loses under Admiral Villeneuve participated in the battle. Admiral Horatio Nelson was mortally wounded by a sharpshooter, however he died in the knowledge that he had won a massive victory over the French and Spanish Fleet. Pierre-Charles Villeneuve, commander of the French Fleet, was in dispair of the defeat took his own life by pushing a dagger into his heart. Trafalgar ended any chance France had of invading Britain and, from 1805 onwards, Napoleon Bonaparte largely kept his military operations to terra firma. (Napoleonic Guide)
