In the 17th century, the King of Sweden commissioned his country’s finest warship. During construction, he insisted that the ship be fitted with a second row of canon in both sides. The shipbuilder- Henrik Hybertsson knew that this would make its top heavy, but he dared not argue with the King. The Wasa sunk 20 minutes after her launch in 1628. She was raised on April 24 1961 after 333 years on the sea bottom and completely restored, she now rest in the Stockholm Naval Museum.
