If England hadn't defeated the Spanish Armada, it would have become a colony of Spain.
No, to protect itself from invasion.
The balance of power shifted in Europe
Philip II intended to force the King of England to renounce Protestantism and rejoin Catholicism.
The victory of the English against the Spanish Armada, is said to be the beginning of the long decline of Spain as a world power. England established itself as a nation that would for several centuries be dominant in naval warfare.
The success of Spanish Armada would mean that Queen Elizabeth, (viewed as a Protestant heretic) would be deposed and the people subjugated to the Spanish rule and forcibly converted to Catholicism.
The Spanish Armada was the Spanish navy, not a specific battle.
The main thing that destroyed or hampered the Spanish Armada, was the British weather. One Spanish ship was captured by Francis Drake in the English Channel, after the Spanish failed to attack the English Fleet in Plymouth, and failed to anchor in the Solent. Storms in the English Channel and North Sea scattered many Spanish ships. To avoid the English fleet approaching from the south, the Armada was forced to sail round the north of… Read More

Pop managed to defeat the Spanish settlers by using their tactics against them. This included dividing and conquering, along with guerrilla warfare and preventing trade and access routes.
No. A freight bill only shows that the equipment was shipped. A signed delivery receipt would be needed. The equipment could have been lost or damaged and therefore not, or no longer, an asset.

The english, the victory was atributed to Sir Walter Raleigh, the story goes that he was playing bowls and insisted on finishing the game before setting sail.

The Battle of Gravelines was on 8 August 1588 and it ended Spanish domination of the Seas. Britain became the leading Naval force in the World.
Poor planning on King Phillips part. His sailing instructions for the ship formation was no match for the English ships. The Duke of Medina Sidonia had no fighting skils let alone fighting at sea.

The spanish were best at land fighting not… Read More
well the spanish were about attack the English so i don't think that anyone would just sit there and wait to be deystroyed! so if it was me i would of attacked them to stop them attacking England.
The Spanish armada was a threat to the Tudors because 1) They were Catholic and the English were Protestant and 2) If they conquered the Tudors then we would all be speaking in Spanish now. English is waaaay cooler! :)

The Civil War.
The English believed the Spanish Armada was defeated because the English had better supplies and sailors and so on. The Spanish believed it was defeated because of the weather - it was very windy and there was a massive storm at the time as well (that couldn't have helped them). In my opinion I believe it was a bit of both.
Its main purpose was to help the Spanish armies on the continent cross over to the English shore. Philip II of Spain wanted to defeat Queen Elizabeth I so that the Protestant country would be open to the Catholic control.
In the year 1588
It made elizabeth look really strong so that all the other countries were very impressed. It showed everone tht she did not need a powerful husband. It gave the catholics no real chance to rebel. It stopped most of the other countries from attacking after she had destroyed the spanish. It stopped the majority of the courtiers from enlessly bugging her about a husband too. I did a whole bloomin essay on this shizz.

Philip II was a Catholic. Spain is a Catholic country
The odds were against the English rather than the Spanish, but a southern gale blew the Spanish Armada northwards, and so the Armada was unable to land on English soil.
The spannish armarda failed, the english forced them to go aroung the whole of britian till they could sail back to Spain. But the spannish planned another attck with better ships. The english had gone to Spain to try and revenge, but that failed and a lot of english people died!
The English sailors (England) defeated the Spanish Armada That country was England
I myself cannot give details of the Battle of St. George's Caye as it is popularly known, but see Emory King's History of Belize (3 vols), paper, for details and further references. If I recall correctly, against the Spanish Armada the British and the settlers had 2 frigates and a few floating gut rafts. The Spanish had many deaths due to illness and withdrew leaving the battle outcome a draw. I believe O'Neil was the… Read More

Spain lost a half of the fleet, and three fourths of their men. Because of Spain's defeat, England remained a protestant stronghold, unlike the Spanish who were catholics.
Spain, under Philip II, was the naval power of the sixteenth century with a fleet of battleships known as the Spanish Armada. After Elizabeth I joined in support with the Dutch insurrection in the Netherlands, Philip launched the Armada in an effort to conquer England. A series of mishaps ended in England's defeat of the Spanish Armada, ending Spain's naval dominance.
only a couple of the Spanish Armada ships were sunk by the English during the Battle of Gravelines. The majority of the ships were sunk due to the storms around the British Isles.
The Spanish Armada was important because the main reason for sailing towards England in 1588 was to overthrow the English throne and Queen Elizabeth I. The Spanish Armada was an invincible until it was defeated by the English naval ships. The invasion of England was thwarted.
You can't just say it was bad. It was good for some, and bad for some. To get any grade, you must discuss both sides.
The bad thing about the industrial revolution was that the rich took advantage of the poor
It prevented Philip II from reimposing religious unity on Western Europe by Force. He did not conquer England, and Elizabeth continued her financial and military support of the Dutch. Also Spain, in memory of the loss of the Spanish Armada contributed to a spirit of defeatism. (AP European History; Chapter 15; p. 498; 2nd column; paragraph 4)
I know already, by your forwardness, that you have deserved rewards and crowns; and we do assure you, on the word of a prince, they shall be duly paid you. In the mean my lieutenant general shall be in my stead, than whom never prince commanded a more noble and worthy subject; not doubting by your obedience to my general, by your concord in the camp, and by your valour in the field, we shall… Read More
There are about 7 reasons why Philip of Spain tried to invade England, one is that Elizabeth I refused to marry him (because he was her brother in law) and there are a lot more. For example religious reasons. King Philip was Catholic and Elizabeth was Protestant.also because Elizabeth had Mary of Scots killed.
because he was angered by English raiders at sea and by the help Elizabeth gave to Protestants in his lands.
The Spanish Armada failed due to lack of food and drink also the failed by building weak ships which was blown away into the sea by ferocious weather. They also failed because they did not have great skill with weapons. Also Philip (the leader of the spanish armada) didnt want to spend all his money on ships supplies or soldiers where as elizabeth 1st spent alot on these things.
Queen Elizabeth I of England was the monarch in 1588, when the armada was defeated. King Phillip II of Spain sent the armada in an attempt to invade England. Although Elizabeth was the monarch at the time, It was sir Francis drake who led the english, and The duke of Medina Sedonia led the armarda.
it started.... because the ships like England and Spain and stuff like that wanted a fight so the decided that they will have a fight to and so they had a fight and England won.

Elizabeth in the Spanish Armada No she wasn't. She fought the Spanish Armada and beat them...
Warships with cannon, and against the anchored Spanish fleet at Calais, fireships. The major differences were that the English had longer range cannon, and could reload three to four times faster than could the Spanish. The latter's technique was to grapple and board, the English to stand off and bombard into submission.
Because Philip of Spain was a Catholic and Elizabeth I was a protestant. Their religious views differed so much that they fought over everything. The Spanish Armada attempted the invasion of England in order to overthrow Elizabeth I and establish Philip and his daughter, the infanta Isabella as the rulers of England. The armada was repelled and sunk by the English navy led by Sir Francis Drake.
Parma's army never boarded the ships of the Armarda. They were not fully equiped and there was insufficient ferry transport. The army was reduced by disease to only 16,000 men and at least another six days was required to put the embarkation plan into action. The Dutch were assisting in the blockade of the coast. Eventually the English Fireships caused the Spanish to scatter leaving the army behind
Elizabeth managed to keep England at peace for nearly 30 years, despite the country being at war with France at the onset of her succession; an unfortunate circumstance of her half-sister's reign. With the execution of Mary Queen of Scots, Spain emerged as England's greatest enemy. Under Elizabeth's rule, the English navy was encouraged to raid Spanish shipping vessels and demolish Spanish monopolies. This outraged Phillip, who launched the Spanish Armada in 1559 in retaliation… Read More

Holland wanted independence from Spain because they resented being made Catholic, when most of the population were Protestant. During this time members of the Spanish Inquisition tortured and killed Protestants, and the English had been not-so-secretly helping the Dutch Protestants in Holland. King Philip II of Spain became angered by this, as for a short time he had been married to Queen… Read More

While the defeat of the Spanish Armada did not affect the Roanoke colonists, the preparations in England for the expected attack certainly did. Part of the preparations included a stay of shipping, meaning that no ships were allowed to leave England. Thus, relief ships carrying much needed supplies for the colony were not sent.
