9/26/1580: Drake completes 1st circumnavigation of the globe by an Englishman (returning with ½ million £ of treasure)
         Then came the Lord Chamberlain with his white staff
        And all the people began to laugh;
        And then the Queen began to speak:
        'You're welcome home, Sir Francis Drake.'

                "Upon Sir Francis Drake's Return from his Voyage about the
                World, &c," Oxford Book of Sea Songs, Roy Palmer

Sorry, Abby. The link above goes to a fairly good explication of Drake's life and his journey on the Golden Hind. Probably more than anyone wants to know, but . . . .

Drake, whose name was used as the boogeyman's to frighten little children in Spain. Well up to the 1930s I believe.
