Subject: La Couronne 1596

I noticed a French ship "La Couronne" built in 1596 about same size as a Swedish Mars 1563, mentioned on Teemu's website (http://felipe.mbnet.fi/html/large_ships_in_1500-century.html)
This "La Couronne" was Keel length 120 ft. (39 meters), and beam c.45 ft. (c.14,6 m) and was a monster ship for it's time.

The source of this information is the Swedish "Svenska flottans historia" vol.1. Also the same info can be found in another Swedish book from 1783, "Handlingar" (https://books.google.com/books?id=2ARLAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA179&lpg=PA179&dq=%22couronne%22+1596+skeppet&source=bl&ots=T30Mt-h_jw&sig=p3obDOKGYqOSxsZiKzCkIJxKgd0&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjpod72p-vQAhVlyFQKHbsWC0YQ6AEIIDAB#v=onepage&q=%22couronne%22%201596%20skeppet&f=false)

I cannot find any other source about this 1596 "La Couronne", not even French.
My personal belief is that there must be mistaken for the "La Couronne" launched in 1634, that had the same dimensions: 165x120x44/46x16 (among many other sets of dimensions available for this ship).

Does anybody know about this 1596 French ship?
