During the 1500s, the relationship between England and Spain was tense, especially as the Spaniards continually failed to host a meaningful attack on England with their Armada. In 1597, visiting Spaniard Don Diego made these tensions worse after breaking wind “loudly and offensively” in St Paul’s Cathedral.
