   This 3-deck ship was laid down in the Admiralty dockyard on June 26, 1782 under the guidance of James Lambe, an English shipbuilder. The ship was launched on September 26, 1783. In the author’s life it was the second ship with the same name (the first, built in 1766, is famous of Chesma battle). The "Treh Hierarkhov" was one of the first Russian copper-bottomed ship. 
    The ship participated in battles of second northern war (1788-1790γγ., Sweden against Russia). In the spring 1790 the Swedish fleet tried to break to Saint Petersburg. In May 1790 Russian squadrons V.J.Chichagov's (10 ships, 10 frigates, 2 bombardier ships etc.) and vice-admiral A.I.Kruz (17 ships, 4 frigates, 8 rowing frigates) have reflected attacks of the Swedish fleet to Revel and Vyborg.  The ship took part also in the Krasnaya Gorca battle. "Treh Hierarhov" was a flagship of rear admiral I.A.Povalishin.
