* The Scene is..........*
July to September 1588
The Spanish Armada, had attempted to rendezvous with its army and invade
England to depose the heretic Elizabeth I.
The Armada waited in vain for the Duke of Parma's army to arrive at Calais.
The English Navy using fireships
caused the Armada's ships to cut anchor and escape into the North Channel.
Meanwhile in Ireland the Irish Pirate Queen Grainne was losing her hold over
the waters of Cley Bay to the English
and traveled to England for an audience with the Queen, hoping to regain her
What ifs ?
What if the Duke of Sidonia Medona did not escape into the North Channel and
followed King Phillips plan to invade England,
but the Privateer Sir Francis Drake was there to try to stop him?
What if the Pirate Commander Grainne Ui Mhaille, seeking release of her
hostage son and her ships, came to present her case before Elizabeth I,
and found herself in the middle of a war? (What could a pirate do?)
What if The 3 Commanders had been able to deploy the Grapple Hook and then
Rapier fighters from each ship fought on decks and gangplanks
with the treacherous ocean waiting to swallow them up?
What if the Spanish Armada and Grainne assaulted the English Castle from
their ships using archers and siege weapons ?
And what if they landed and all 3 commanders met in an open field battle?
Then we could have the Battle of Three commanders.
Stewards for the Battle of Three Commaanders.
