-Philip ll, or more commonly referred to as the most Catholic king, sought to restore
Catholicism to England and remove Elizabeth I from the throne.
-In 1587, Sir Francis Drake launched a preemptive strike one of Spain’s largest harbors, Cadiz, thus destroying supplies intended for the invasion and giving England time to build its defenses.
-From May 28 to July 28 1588 the British repeatedly attacked Spanish ships, and by the end of July only 60 Spanish ships returned to Spain and as many as 15000 Spaniards perished.

the Spanish Armada

-Mary Queen of Scotts married the heir to the French throne when she was 15 years old, became
the queen consort of France at 17,and was widowed at age 18.
- Mary returned to Scotland to rule on her own, taking power away from influential lords, while maintaining close connections with the French crown.
Queen Elizabeth was worried she would be a threat to the crown in 1560, when she declared herself the true catholic inheritor of the English throne
After many years of quarreling, Mary was forced to abdicate and was taken prisoner by Scottish lords. She fled to England for safety and was taken into protective custody by Elizabeth, and eventually executed on February 8, 1587.

Religious policy
Under Queen Elizabeth I
Source: BBC.co.uk
Immediately after receiving the throne of England in 1558, Elizabeth I began working on creating the Church settlement, which was passed by Parliament in 1559.
The Settlement allowed her subjects to honor their own religions privately, as long as they were loyal to the Queen.
Subjects were required to attend one Elizabethan church service per week, otherwise they received a fine.
Both Catholics and Protestants agreed to the policy and they became unified as English people rather than divided into different religions.
The Church of England's services included elements of the old Catholic faith, as well as adopted some of the reforms provided by the Protestant movement.
