HMS Pique was formerly the French ship Pallas, a 36-gun fifth rate, captured in 1800 by a squadron off the coast of France. She was initially named HMS Aeolus but renamed to Pique in 1801. Because Pique served in the navy's Egyptian campaign (2 March to 8 September 1801), her officers and crew qualified for the clasp "Egypt" to the Naval General Service Medal, which the Admiralty issued in 1847 to all surviving claimants. She was sold for breaking up in 1819.
HMS Pique was a 46-gun fifth rate ordered in 1825, but cancelled in 1832.
