"In July 1545 the French fleet entered the Solent with the intention of invading the Isle of Wight and destroying the English fleet. The French voyage started in farce. On July 6th Francis I dined on the flagship Carraquon, after he left it was destroyed by fire. Admiral Claude d'Annebault shifted his flag to La Maistresse, which promptly ran aground on leaving port. Patching up the leaks, the fleet sailed for the Isle of Wight.
The French fleet was huge, with 200 sail, including 23 of the galleys that had proved so effective in 1513.The English fleet that met them consisted of around 80 ships, gathered in Portsmouth, with more expected from the west Country.
The Spanish Armada (Spanish: Grande y Felicísima Armada or Armada Invencible, literally "Great and Most Fortunate Navy" or "Invincible Fleet") was the Spanish fleet that sailed against England under the command of the Duke of Medina Sidonia in 1588, with the intention of overthrowing Elizabeth I of England and putting an end to her involvement in the Spanish Netherlands and in privateering in the Atlantic and Pacific.
The Armada reached and anchored outside Gravelines, but, while awaiting communications from Parma's army, it was driven out by an English fire ship attack. In the ensuing battle, the Spanish fleet was forced to abandon its rendezvous. The Armada managed to regroup and withdraw north, with the English fleet harrying it for some distance up the east coast of England.
