This beautiful Spanish map depicts the principal regions of Europe in play during the Eighty Years War (1568-1648) in which the Netherlands rebelled against the Spanish Hapsburg rule ultimately forming the independent Dutch Republic. An interesting touch is an illustration of burning fleet at the top of the map in the North Sea. Could be a reference to the Spanish Armada which was destroyed in 1588 in an unrelated action against the English during the same period.
