Why did Spain attack, England in the late 1500's? {2 reasons}

How did Spain's defeat lead to the weakening of the Spanish Empire?

  • social studies -

    1) Phillip II of Spain was a Catholic, while Elizabeth I of England was a Protestant

    2) In 1584, Phillip II signed the Treaty of Joinville with the Catholic League in France. In 1585, Elizabeth I signed the Treaty of Nonsuch with the Dutch agreeing to provide them with men, horses, and a subsidy. Phillip II took this as a declaration of war and acted as such.

    Spain's defeat severely weakened it's Navy which it rebuilt most of later in the war. Ultimately, English privateering devastated the Spanish preventing them to enforce it's power across it's colonies. The war also shifted trade in favor of the Protestant powers of the time.
