The Spanish were at war with England during the Anglo-Spanish War (1585-1604). In 1588 the Spanish Armada, a fleet of 130 ships, sailed to England with the purpose of escorting an army from Flanders to invade England and overthrow queen Elisabeth I. The Armada was defeated by the English ships, which had better fire power, with the help of Dutch ships. Of the initial 130 ships over a third failed to return home.
