The Spanish Armada consisted of 130 ships that were sent by Philip II to Flanders to pick up an army to invade England and depose Elizabeth I. The English and Dutch both harassed the fleet until they were forced into retreat but they then fell afoul of the storms at sea as they went to navigate around Scotland and Ireland to return to Spain. Many ships were wreaked and they lost about one third of their entire fleet.
