 armada
Between 1569 and 1588, Spain's shipping and colonies in the New World were threatened by such English privateers as John Hawkins and Sir Francis Drake, popularly known as "Sea Dogs." Elizabeth covertly encouraged the Sea Dogs and even invested in their profit-seeking ventures.
Spain's loss, both in ships and in men, was enormous, and Spain's status as a world power was destroyed.
Although Spain continued to fight expensive territorial and religious wars in Europe for several decades afterward, the defeat of the Spanish Armada decidedly marked the beginning of Spain's decline as an actor on the world stage.

 The Periphery of Francia: Spain, Britain, Eastern Europe, & Scandinavia
Spain was sometimes styled an "empire." Ferdinand I and Alfonso VII of Castile were sometimes styled "Emperor," but in Mediaeval Europe, the Popes regarded such a title as theirs to dispense, and no self-proclaimed emperors were going to get cooperation from the Church.
When the Pope finally crowned Emperor a King of Spain, it was Charles V (Charles I of Spain), a 1/4 German Hapsburg who had been born and raised in Belgium.
Spain thus harmed, and shamed, itself with its intolerance, and wandered from the mainstream of modern development, but there it no doubt that its aesthetic and religious vision was powerful, autochthonous, and enduring.

 Flag of Spain's Charles I
More importantly, Castile and Aragon were united to form the nation of Spain, with Carlos reigning as Charles I. By 1518, a new royal banner had been designed for King Charles I. In the famous painting "De Soto's Discovery of the Mississippi," De Soto's men are shown carrying two flags.
On the left is a red banner with the name "De Soto" under a crown, both of which are encircled by a gold wreath.
To the right is the royal banner of Spain's monarch, Charles I. If de Soto indeed carried Charles royal banner on his 1539-1543 exploration through the Southeast, he would have carried during his journey through present-day Georgia in 1540.

 How successful was Charles I as king of Spain?
Some historians have criticised Charles for holding a narrow and rigid intellectual and religious life in Spain, however, he viewed with great pride his success in protecting country from the contagion of religious heresy.
Although in Spain after 1522 there was a remarkable period of political peace some historians do not accept that this was due to the success of Charles' rule.
There is some evidence of popular hostility to Charles and also a feeling of unease and foreboding in the stamens of those in positions of power and responsibility.
