On June 20, 1667, a daring naval operation unfolded as the Dutch fleet, led by Admiral Michiel de Ruyter, launched a surprise attack on the English fleet at Chatham. This audacious move was part of the Second Anglo-Dutch War. The Dutch forces overcame defensive barriers and stormed the River Medway, inflicting heavy damage on the unprepared English ships. The most symbolic act was the burning of the HMS Royal Charles, a flagship of the English navy, which was not only destroyed but also towed away as a trophy. This decisive Dutch victory at Chatham was a significant blow to English naval prestige and contributed to the end of the war with the Treaty of Breda.
