The Battles of Barfleur and La Hogue was the decisive naval battle of the Nine Years’ War, known to the British as the War of the English Succession.

The related naval battles of Barfleur and La Hogue took place between 29 May and 4 June 1692.

The French fleet of 44 ships of the line under the command of the Comte Anne Hilarion de Tourville was preparing to transport an invading army of Franco-Irish troops to restore James II to the English throne.

The French fleet was scattered, and 15 were lost, 3 at Cherbourg and a further 12 at La Hougue. The threat of invasion of England was lifted.
