Spanish forces invaded England in 1589. The Spanish Armada, despite delays and changing of leadership, was successful. With the hanging of major leaders, Isabella Clara Eugenia was made governor of the region. An English Inquisition rooted out any people who threatened Spanish control. For 180 years, Spanish became a part of the English language, as Spain grew in power. England was falling into ruin. The Spanish peso was the main currency of the region. England was a bad place to be in, and nothing was healing its wounds.
Benedict Arnold, leader of the Free English Army, began a war of liberation in England in1768. His tactics, like avoiding major battles wherever possible, were highly useful. Despite "Loyal Counties" like Cornwall and Wales, England gained independence as a nation. Although Wales was still under Spanish control, England gained its assured independence. However, this new nation was unable to create colonies as Dutch, French, and Spanish dominance of the world seemed to be the norm. England was a lowly kingdom ruled by King Benedict I. Even Ireland was a greater power than England.
Wars with the Netherlands
The weakest power was definitely the Netherlands. Their dominance of trade with India was beginning to snowball into colonialism. In what was termed the "English Armada," English troops invaded the Netherlands in 1834. Although their invasion was intimately unsuccessful, the Netherlands never really recovered. France was beginning to trade with India, but English power was still minor.
Founding of Oligarchical Republic
In England, poverty led to increasing dissatisfaction towards the King. King Arnold IV, of the House of Arnold, was seen as the reason the English were so poor. The French and even the Dutch to an extent were powerful. England was a broken place which was not getting healed. Aristocrat James Smith realized that such a state was great for establishing himself as power. In a swift coup, he removed the King from power.
