The Battle of Malaga, 13th August, 1704, proved to be one of the more indecisive naval battles of the War of the Spanish Succession. Three weeks after the Allies had captured Gibraltar, the Comte de Toulouse sailed from Toulon with fifty ships-of-the line with the intention of bringing the Allied fleet to battle and of retaking Gibraltar. Admiral Sir George Rooke was in overall command of the Anglo-Dutch fleet, which comprised fifty-three ships-of-the-line, with Admiral Cloudsley Shovell leading the van division and the Dutch Admiral Callenburgh the rear. His ships were low on ammunition, much having been expended during the bombardment of Gibraltar.
