en:Battle of Pirano[edit]

(es:Acción militar del 22 de febrero de 1812) (it:Battaglia di Grado) (sl:Bitka pri Piranu)

(Net support = 1; Against = 33.333%) (Group 2) (No votes from 8 days)

The Battle of Pirano (known also as battle of Grado) on 22 February 1812 was a naval action of the Adriatic campaign of the Napoleonic Wars fought between a British and a French ship of the line in the vicinity of the towns of Piran and Grado in Adriatic Sea. The French Rivoli, named for Napoleon's victory 15 years earlier, had been recently completed at Venice. The French naval authorities intended her to bolster French forces in the Adriatic, following a succession of defeats in the preceding year.
