HMS Queen Charlotte was a 104-gun first-rate ship of the line of the Royal Navy, launched on 17 July 1810 at Deptford. She was built to the lines of Sir Edward Hunt's Royal George as a replacement for the first HMS Queen Charlotte which had been lost by accident on 17 March 1800.
The Queen Charlotte was converted to serve as a training ship in 1859 and renamed HMS Excellent. She was eventually sold out of the service to be broken up in 1892.
