The Spanish Armada


The Armada

Philip II of Spain was angry that Queen Elizabeth had not punished Sir Francis Drake for plundering Spanish ships and got together a huge fleet of ships and sent it against the English.

Why is the 1588 battle with the Spanish Armada so famous?

The Armada is famous because at that time England was a small nation with a little navy and they were facing the greatest power in the world (Spain).  They defeated Spain, with help from Mother Nature.  It marked the beginning of England's mastery of the seas.  The great history of the English navy began, as did serious English exploration and colonization.
