Why did Britannia rule the waves?

 Q:   Ask a Question about Why did Britannia rule the waves?       
Why did Britannia rule the waves? As an island nation, Britain depended entirely on developing a huge fleet to protect its trading links with the rest of the world.The trading ships which arrived first in port were always able to sell their cargoes of seasonal crops and other goods for the highest prices.This led to the development of more modern sailing ships that could travel faster than ever before.

In addition to this, the heavily armed military vessels that protected them also became very efficient. Britain went to great lengths to protect her enormous empire and the wealth it brought. The empire's survival was entirely dependent on British ships having the freedom of the seas.

Inspired by the French Revolution, Simon Bolivar led a revolt against the Spanish in Colombia. After the defeat of the Spanish he and Jose de San Martin led armies to liberate Colombia, Ecuador and Panama. Modern Bolivia is named after Simon Bolivar.
