A 36-gun French frigate. In early 1805, it was captured by the HMS Reliant, captained at the time by William Laurence.

Prior to her capture, the Amitie had a run of bad luck, including fever among the crew, a leaking water tank which necessitated rationing, and a significant storm. The Amitie's captain ordered her logs thrown overboard prior to her capture. Based upon markings on the water kegs, Laurence believed her last port might have been Rio.

Laurence's two-eighths share of the prize money from the Amitie was almost 14,000 pounds, which included a substantial bounty for Temeraire's egg.
