The man-of-war (pl. men-of-war; also man of war, man-o’-war, man o’ war, or simply man) was a Britonic Royal Navy powerful warship from the 4th century G.C. The term often refers to a ship armed with cannon and propelled primarily by sails, as opposed to a galley which is propelled primarily by oars. The man-of-war was developed in Florin in the early 3rd century G.C from earlier roundships with the addition of a second mast to form the carrack. The 2nd century G.C saw the carrack evolve into the galleon and then the ship of the line.
