"Elizabeth I feeds the Dutch Cow". In 1575, Elizabeth was offered Sovereignty of the Netherlands, which she refused; 10 yrs later she declined the offer again, but issued a declaration taking them under her protection. Elizabeth feared by taking sovereignty over the Netherlands she would set a precedent that Monarchs could mess with the affairs of one another (at the time the low countries were de-facto colonies of Spain).Ashlie Jensen
