 Encyclopedia: Spanish Armada
The building of the Armada was commenced in 1584, three years before the execution of Mary Stuart Mary I of Scotland in 1587, following of her conviction for conspiracy in the attempted assassination of Elizabeth.
The Armada invasion plan was flawed from the start in the unworkably precise timing and communication that it demanded between Medina Sidonia and Parma, as well as in the near-absence of deep-water ports accessible to Philip on the north-western European coastline for a fleet of the Armada's size and composition.
The Armada was forced to return to Spain by sailing around the northern coasts of Scotland and Ireland; a dangerous voyage during which the Armada was buffeted by severe September storms that caused enormous damage.
