Great Classic Sailing Ships

Aemilia was built in Rotterdam in 1632, and was flagship in 1636.
She was last mentioned 1647.
Aemilia dimensions was normally mentioned as 132x32x13,5 Amsterdam feet, but  now it is come to daylight some documents, which prove ,that in Roterdam was used also in Rhineland voet (313,9mm), or Maas voet (308,9mm).
Also Aemilia gun number suggest in larger dimensions, if we compare the ships, which we known to built in Amsterdam in the same period.
Aemilia carried 46-57 guns in his carrieer, and the crew was 200+40 men.
