The Spanish Armada

30 minutes
Still image from The Spanish Armada

In 1588, Phillip II of Spain, a devout Catholic, determined to invade the Protestant England of Elizabeth I. He launched the Spanish Armada, a fleet of 130 ships, but Sir Francis Drake and the smaller, lighter English navy defeated the Armada by using fire ships. The broken Armada lost ships and sailors on the return home, and Phillip lost his dream and Spain's domination of the world.
