The Spanish Armada 1588 and the English-Spanish relationship during the era of Queen Elizabeth I (1558-1603)

Abstract: This paper tries to present clearly the conflict relationship between England and Spain during the era of Queen Elizabeth I (1558-1603) with a highlight point of the Spanish Armada. When discussing this battle, many Vietnamese scholars seem to misunderstand that the relationship between the two countries were quite complex. This article shows that the Spanish-English war (1585-1604) was not only related to differences in religion but also issues of economy, politics, piracy and their influence in Europe. The Spanish Armada has little meaning as it was only a noticeable maritime battle in the Spanish-English war which began a process of a power- transformation in Europe in the late sixteenth century.
