In 1800, she was involved in the battle of Dunkirk.
In January 1805, she was sent to observe British movements off Toulon, along with Hortense. On 4 February, they attacked a convoy, destroying 7 ships. Three days later, they encountered the convoy escorted by the 20-gun sloop HMS Arrow and the 8-gun bomb vessel HMS Acheron; the two Royal Navy vessels were destroyed, and 3 ships of the convoy captured.
