The war

The Elizabethan War with Spain from 1585 - 1603

The reasons for the Elizabethan War with Spain from 1585 - 1603 exploded due to various conflicts surrounding the wealth and power to be gained from trade from the New World. And the differences in Religion. Under Elizabeth I England became a Protestant country.

This was not all if it the Spanish were naturists for having the greatest fleet until this war until this magnificent Navy came in to play and since of it led to 1603 the war with Spain officially ended. King James I issued a decree that all acts of piracy must cease.

This proving the power of their military but how and what was so significant about their navy.


hIt is known that during Elizabeth's reign, English sailors and gunners became greatly feared. For example, at the beginning of Henry VIII's reign, the English fleet was forced to retreat from heavily armed French galleys.

By the time of Elizabeth, even Philip of Spain was warning of the deadly English artillery. But no-one has ever been able to clearly show why this was.

The new research follows the discovery of the first wreck of an Elizabethan fighting ship off Alderney in the Channel Islands, thought to date from around 1592, just four years after the Spanish Armada.

The ship was a pinnace, a small ship carrying 12 guns, two of which have been recovered two this day. But the military had to have a doctor here and there so lets see

Doctors and Medicine

Doctors in Shakespeare’s (This Age) time were not very educated compared to today’s doctors. Most of their work was based on the philosophies of Aristotle and Hippocrates. The beliefs that the doctors shared were accepted by most people during the Shakespearean era. There were some doctors that did not agree with Hippocrates and Aristotle. They believed that if the planets were not aligned correctly, someone would fall ill judging by their horoscope sign.

Doctors to that day were not seem to be trust worthy but had been mostly the only to people, even though they were injured but they as well sick so lets see their medicine

In Shakespearean times the medicinal suggestions were commonly based on superstition and complete guesses. The doctors would commonly prescribe herbal medicine to improve their patient’s health. Back then, many diseases were not recognized, so the doctors would just use the most powerful herbal drugs. Another common idea was to use leeches to “suck out the bad blood".

William Shakespeare

"Shakespeare, William (1564-1616), was an English playwright, poet, and actor. Many people regard him as the world’s greatest dramatist and the finest poet England has ever produced."

One common creation of Shakespeare is Romeo and Juliet is a famous tragedy written by English playwright William Shakespeare. The play was probably first performed in 1596 and was first published in 1597. Romeo and Juliet portrays two young lovers in Verona, Italy.

What led Shakespeare take the rout of a writer and other carriers ? Geoffrey Chaucer is considered one of the major poets of England. His poem, "Troilus and Criseyde," was Shakespeare's main source for his play, "Troilus and Cressida." Chaucer's influence can also be seen in Romeo and Juliet, where Mercurio's speech is based on "Parliament of Fowles."

Queen Elizabeth I

Elizabeth I (1533-1603) was queen of England from 1558 until her death in 1603. Her reign is often called the Golden Age or the Elizabethan Age because it was a time of great achievement in England. Elizabeth established a moderately Protestant Church of England as the country's national church. At the same time, she long avoided war with Europe's leading Roman Catholic nations.

Elizabeth had been a strong and clever one who knew how to rule England. She was reminded of her father King Henry VIII shared her father's gifts for music and other arts. In addition, she was an outstanding orator.
