Description

King of England by virtue of his marriage to Mary Tudor, Philip was not to enjoy this power for long, as Mary died in the year of their marriage and left her throne to her half sister Elizabeth. The Spanish king long sustained hopes of influencing and dominating the young queen, he found himself powerless in the face of her stubborn resistance. This new full color edition examines the personal and political motivations that led Philip II of Spain to send the greatest sailing fleet the world had ever known to seek to destroy his one-time sister in law.
