French frigate Pomone (1805) The Pomone was a 40-gun Hortense class frigate of the French Navy, built at Genoa for the puppet government of the Ligurian Republic, which was annexed as part of France in June 1805, a month after the Pomone was completed. On 30 January 1807, she collided with the Muiron.

She was captured near Corfu during the Action of 29 November 1811, and briefly added to the Royal Navy as HMS Ambuscade (although never brought into service) before being broken up for material in November 1812 at Woolwich Dockyard.
