SPAN­ISH AR­MADA

History of War - - ELIZABETHAN WARS -

The most fa­mous mil­i­tary event of El­iz­a­beth’s reign is the naval de­feat of Philip II of Spain’s huge in­va­sion fleet. Over one-third of the Span­ish ships are lost against English ships, but stormy weather in the North and Ir­ish seas de­stroys more of the ‘In­vin­ci­ble Ar­mada’ than the English fleet.
