The Story of the Spanish Armada King Philip II of Spain and Queen Elizabeth of England had different religions. King Philip was a Catholic. Queen Elizabeth was a Protestant. This made them enemies.
Sir Francis Drake was English. He annoyed King Philip because he would attack Spanish ships and steal their treasure.
King Philip wanted Mary of Scotland to be queen of England because she was a Catholic like him. This made Elizabeth very cross. When she found out she had Mary executed.
In 1558 King Philip II sent out a fleet of ships. He wanted revenge. The fleet was called the Armada. When the Armada stopped in France they were attacked during the night by English ships. Fourteen Spanish ships were sunk or run aground. The rest fled to Ireland.
The English Navy was too good for the Armada to beat. The Spanish ships were not used to the English weather either. Storms damaged their ships.
