In 1903, she ferried President Émile Loubet to Algeria. In 1912, she replaced the Dugay-Trouin as school ship of the École Navale, departing from the tradition of using ships of the line for this purpose.
In 1919, she was reinstated as school ship, sailing nine campaigns. She was eventually decommissioned in 1928, and struck in 1934.
