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.

The Geuzen (the Beggars) was a name assumed by the confederacy of Calvinist Dutch nobles, who from 1566 opposed Spanish rule in the Netherlands. The most successful group of them operated at sea, and so were called Watergeuzen. The Capture of Brielle by the Watergeuzen in 1572 provided the first foothold on land for the rebels, who would conquer the northern Netherlands and establish an independent Dutch Republic.
