Short Note This is a short note

Elizabeth I signs a preliminary treaty with the Estates-General of the United Provinces (the northern provinces of the Netherlands) to aid them in the defence of Antwerp against their Spanish governors. The treaty was provoked by the signing of the Treaty of Joinville in 1584 between Philip II of Spain and the Catholic League in France in which Philip II promised to finance the League.
