* Sir Francis Drake was a famous English navigator, who took to sea at the age of 13, becoming master of a cargo barge at 20 and honing his sailing skills. Piloting a ship eventually renamed the "golden Hind", Drake was sent by Queen Elizabeth to start an expedition against the Spanish, and set sail from England on December 13, 1577. He eventually returned to Plymouth in 1580, and was proclaimed to be the the first Englishman to circumnavigate the Earth. Queen Elizabeth knighted Drake aboard the Golden Hind on April 4, 1581.
