Ordered on 19 December 1805 to reinforce the Navy after the disaster of Trafalgar, she was commissioned in Toulon in May 1809 under Captain Guien. On 29 August 1814, after the Hundred Days, she was transferred from Toulon to Brest, along with Wagram and Commerce de Paris, where she was disarmed in December. The Austerlitz was eventually struck and broken up in 1837.
