Battle of Bévéziers) was a naval engagement fought on 10 July 1690 during the Nine Years' War.
The battle was the greatest French tactical naval victory over their English and Dutch opponents during the war.
The Dutch lost six ships of the line in total (sources vary), as well as three fireships, and their English allies also lost one ship of the line, whereas the French did not lose a single vessel.
Tourville was heavily criticised for not following up his victory and was relieved of his command.
English admiral Torrington – who had advised against engaging the superior French fleet but had been overruled by Queen Mary and her ministers – was court-martialled for his performance during the battle.
Although he was acquitted, King William dismissed him from the service.
