The Royal Louis was a First-rate 116-gun ship of the line of the Royal French Navy, built in 1757-59 by Jacques-Luc Coulomb at Brest. She was the fourth ship to bear the name, and the only ship of the Sans-Pareil design ever built.
In 1771, when in dry dock, she was damaged beyond repair and eventually demolished in 1772.
A 1/18 scale model on display at Paris naval museum is thought to represent Royal Louis.
