This chapter examines the European naval power from the late 16th to the end of the 18th centuries. The nature of intra-state conflicts and the growing interest in shipping and trade forced governments to pay attention to the availability of adequate naval strength. Navies were initially assembled by private entrepreneurs, but from 1650 onwards, state institutions became increasingly responsible for all aspects connected with the navy. These include ship design, arsenals, training of naval officers, and conscription.
