This is Queen Elizabeth I She is Part of the Prostestant Relgion. She is from England
King Philip wanted to invade England by seas. He had much better ships that were prepared for close quarter battles. He had many ships and even formed a crescent. They were unstopable.
Queen Elizabeth did not want this to happen. So she sent out some of her ships to defend. Her ships were faster and easier to get around and also were prepared for long range but She had very few ships in total.
The English sent 8 unmanned ships that were on fire towards the Spanish that deformed there crescent shape. Thus causing the English to use there quick moves and go in for the kill. At this time the Spanish were allready low on supplies and had lost 15 ships. So the english won the battles.
