The Auguste was an 80-gun Bucentaure-class 80-gun ship of the line of the French Navy, designed by Sané.

In 1812, she was part of Gourdon's squadron.

She was renamed to Illustre in March 1814, with the Bourbon Restauration. As the Treaty of Fontainebleau left her to France, with 11 other ships of the line, she sailed to her new station in Brest in October.

She was disarmed the next month, and never sailed again. In a state of disrepair, she was broken up in 1827.
