Spain and England Go to War

Spain and England were involved in a conflict, so King Philip II of Spain created the Spanish Armada, which was eventually defeated by the English Fleet. Of course, this defeat set the Spanish back. Although, there were also problems with their economy. The gold and silver that was sent to Spain from the Americas was rising in price. Both the loss of the Spanish Armada and the complications in Spain's economy gave the other European countries a chance to claim land in America.
