Historical events traditionally recognised by historians as key-moments and still featuring as historical markers in castle stories deal foremost with kings and queens and relate violent clashes and political reconfigurations.

About a century later, at the start of The First Dutch War, Samuel Pepys argued in front of the Privy Council that the sailing of commercial ships to the Mediterranean should be prohibited, ‘the King having resolved to have 130 ships out by the spring, he must have above 20 of them merchantmen’ (Coote 2000, 152). The history of the Irish ‘pirate queen’ Grace O’Malley also illustrates the multiple purposes of ships as military, pirate, trading and passenger ships (Chambers 1998). The watergeuzen, Dutch men and women fighting the Spanish on the water, likewise employed ships for trading, pirating and warfare.

Due to her marriage to Philip II of Spain, who was just as spiritually inclined as she was, mighty Spain and a more humble England formed a true Catholic stronghold in Europe.
