I need to find a history research about sir francis drake.
Sir Francis Drake is very very interesting fellow. He was hired by Queen Elizabeth to sail around the world in the 150s. He was actually quite a pirate as well over the years. Queen Elizabeth put up with it, because he was damaging the Spanish. He would attack the Spanish fleet and take their gold. Queen Elizabeth liked that quite a bit. In 1580 Drake became the 2nd man to successfully circumnavigate the globe (sail all the way around the world).
