I am Queen Elizabeth I of England and I'm Protestant
I am King Philip II of Spain and I'm Catholic
When Elizabeth I executed the Catholic Mary Queen of Scots in 1587, Philip decided to invade England. Philip's plan was that an armada of 130 ships would sail to the Netherlands, to pick up more of the Spanish army and invade England.
Yes your majesty!
Whilst Spain was stationed at Calais, the English army sent 8 ships that were set on fire towards the Spanish Armada. This tore apart the Spanish crescent formation and left the Spanish open to attack. Many Spanish ships were sunk ultimately leading to their defeat.
