Queen Elizabeth I • Part 3
THE REASONS FOR THE BATTLE • Philip II of Spain had no reason to be happy with Elizabeth : • First she was aiding the Netherlands with troops , and she helped them to fight against the Spanish rule . • Her pirates attacked his ships and stole their cargo ; • And worst of all Elizabeth refused him to marry when she became Queen .
Francis Drake‘s raid on the Spanish fleet in Cadiz caused Philip to speed up his plans . • So Philip II sent his Armada to invade England in 1587 . • The English had been preparing for this since Mary‘s death in 1587 . • But only less than half the Spanish fleet left the port .
THE BATTLE • The Spanish galleons were large and difficult to manuever in comparison to the smaller and faster English ships.
The Armada was unable to land on the English shore because of the size of their ships . • The soldiers couldn‘t come on land . • But the use of land troops was an important part of Philip`s plan .
The English also used fireboats to destroy the Armada . • A fireboat is a unmanned ship which is covered in tar to sail into the opposing fleet • The fireboats were also loaded with explosives and gunpowder .
The fireboats were so effective that the Armada was almost destroyed . • Only 67 ships returned to Spain . • Overnight England became one of the most powerful countries in Europe .
