    “I am so attached to [the cause] in my heart, and I am so convinced that God our Saviour must embrace it as His own cause, that I cannot be dissuaded. Nor can I accept or believe the contrary”. That was how the Spanish king Philip II answered his advisors when they tried to convince him not to invade England, suppress the revolt in the Netherlands and make war against the Ottoman empire all at the same time. The result of the king’s hubris is well known. The Spanish armada was sunk in the Channel, the Seventeen Provinces became independent; only the Ottoman expansion was, temporarily, halted.
