About this item

This book contains the annotated translation of an account of Spain’s Armada of the Strait, which traveled to Brazil and the Strait of Magellan in 1581-84. The voyage came at a crucial juncture in global politics, when Philip II of Spain had claimed the throne of Portugal and its empire, and Francis Drake’s daring peacetime raids had challenged the dominance of Spain and Portugal in the Americas. At stake in this struggle for the South Atlantic was the future of two vast continents. The Armada of the Strait aimed to bolster the defenses of Brazil against French and English pirates and interlopers and to fortify and populate the Strait of Magellan. If it succeeded, the claims of both Iberian powers in the Americas would be protected.
