Queen Elizabeth of England's sister/King Philip of Spain's wife passed away.
Will you marry me?
No, you were my sister's husband, and also I don't want England to be Catholic, I want it to be Protestant.
Fine, then we shall go to war!!!
The English thought of great tactics when they went to war. They decided to send 8 ships that were up in flames to break the Spanish Armada's crescent form. Their plan worked and the Spanish Armada fled, while some of their ships sank. This ingenious plan the English came up with, was a major impact and helped them win the war.
