What was the english role in the second wave of european oceanic expansion

Feb 18th, 2015

European overseas expansion after 1600 entered a second phase, comparable
to developments at home. As Spain declined, so did the Spanish empire and that
of Portugal, which was tied to Spain by a Habsburg king after 1580 and plagued
with its own developing imperial problems. These new conditions afforded
opportunities for northern European states. The Dutch, between 1630 and 1650,
almost cleared the Atlantic of Spanish warships and took over most of the
Portuguese posts in Brazil, Africa, and Asia. The French and English also
became involved on a smaller scale, setting up their global duel for empire in
the eighteenth century.
