Did you know that in 1588 "Britain" didn't exist

ummm, hate to break this to you, Atlantic Fleet, but 'Britain' did exist back then. It was called the 'island of Britain' (I believe)

It is always a good feeling, if there is someone to blame for ones very own failures, or isn't?!

I'll look forward to your next article, where the Soviet Union defeats *everyone* ….

 … with the Super BB we know they 'could have had' but for Stalin saying 'nyet'. Now WG gets to rescind/rewrite this 'historical BS' (no problem ,Comrade).

No my friend, it really wasn't. It was called the Kingdom of England. The United Kingdom of Great Britain was not created until 1707.

There is/was a NAME for the whole island comprising England, Scotland & Wales, etc.  …….. Duh!  …  Man are some people 'dense' or what?

Antean didn't say anything about the United Kingdom of Great Britain, only the term Britain. There a references to that term going back to atleast the Greeks. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Britain_(place_name)

 

Ain't misplaced nationalism great. :Smile_hiding:

 

Edit: Looks like antean didn't need my help.

People do not seem to read and understand things anymore either. I completely agree with what you put there. 

That is why I often give people this book, next year I'll give a copy to my son.

I'm pretty sure that Brexit debate is off-topic and derailing the thread. Not that it was meaningful to start with, but if this becomes pure Brexit debate, take it to PM or the off-topic section.

Arrrrr, you are correct @Riselotte. Back on topic then.

 

TBH the OP is incorrect, at that battle it was England under Elizabeth I.

But actually, if we must nitpick, it was also the Dutch Republic helping the Britons (for a change...).

And that wasn't the Spanish, but actually the Iberian Union... so a bit more of Spain than nowadays.

Remains the question, was that 'just England' then, well, Elizabeth had Mary (Queen of Scots) executed in 1587...

So who rules Scotland then? Elizabeth was already Queen of Ireland... so yes there you go.

I'd say Great Britain, and even a bit more. Not just England...

Look at the reactions to my original post, you can see that we are doomed

How am I incorrect when the whole point of my post was that Elizabeth I was Queen of England. Has the world gone mad?

You said it was not Great Britain. Actually, it was a GREATER Britain...

Oh FFS can some Mod close this ridiculous thread for being off topic at the very least. This is the Game Discussion > Gameplay > section of the forums is it not? Or have stumbled into I have a :etc_swear: opinion on politics thread? Christ almighty this place is becoming torturous.
