Zunaira chishti Sir walter RaleIgh

Sir Walter Raleigh was a poet, a Tudor courtier and adventurer. He led many expeditions to America and introduced tobacco and the potato in England.

He chose the name of the first English colony in America. He named it Virginia after Queen Elizabeth.

It is said that he spread his cloak in front of Queen Elizabeth so that she did not have to stand in a puddle. There is no evidence to support this.

Sir Walter was beheaded on 29 October 1618 for hampering the friendship between Britain and Spain.
