The Spanish Armada was significant because it was the largest fleet ever assembled and for the English the defeat of the Armada made it a celebrate victory that made Sir Francis Drake even more of a hero.

2.) The Huguenots were French Protestants inspired by the writings of John Calvin, who endorsed the reformed tradition of Protestantism. The Huguenots were significant because they essentially led to the French Wars of Religion that ruined French voyages of exploration, discovery, and the establishment of overseas colonies. (1598)
