Between 1791 and 1793, she was based in Saint-Domingue. In March 1794, she was renamed Montagnard. On 29 May, during the May 1794 Atlantic campaign, she encountered a British squadron; in the ensuing battle, she sustained damage which prevented her from taking part in the subsequent battle of the Glorious First of June itself.
She was renamed Batave on 27 April 1798. The next year, she took part in the Cruise of Bruix.
Condemned in 1807, she was broken up in Brest.
