The Anglo-Spanish War was waged between the Elizabethan kingdom of England and the Spanish kingdom of Phillip II in the years 1585-1604. The most famous incident of the war was the failed invasion of England by the Spanish Armada in 1588. However, it would be incorrect to say that England won the war - nobody really won. Throughout the war Phillip II provided supplies for rebels against the crown, most notably in Ireland.
