She was offered to the French Republic by a subscription of merchants from Paris on 27 May 1803 and started as Ville de Paris. She was renamed Commerce de Paris on 21 November 1804.
In 1808, she served as flagship of the Mediterranean squadron under Vice-Amiral Ganteaume and Contre-Amiral Cosmao, with Captain Violette as her flag officer. In 1809, Ganteaume transferred on Majestueux. In June 1809, command of Commerce de Paris was transferred to Captain Brouard.
From 1822 to 1825, she was razeed by one battery. In 1830, she was renamed Commerce, then Borda in 1839. She was used as a school ship from 1840. Renamed Vulcain in 1863, she was eventually scrapped in 1885.
