If you were queen of England, what would you do, eh? Would you give your admiral the opportunity to do great deeds?
Queen Elizabeth I:
I'd give him the opportunities he never dared dream about. I'd send him around the globe as the Portuguese do. I'd send him to the New World to let the Spaniards know that they are no longer masters of it.
That won't be easy. We're a small country, Bess.
