The naval Battle of Gibraltar took place on 25 April 1607during the Eighty Years War when a Dutch fleet surprised and engaged a Spanish fleet anchored at the Bay of Gibraltar.

Other Dutch ships were De Tijger (Tiger), De Zeehond (Seal), De Griffionen (Griffon), De Roode leeuw (Red Lion), The Golden Lion, De Zwarte Beer (Black Baer), De Witte Beer (White Bear) and De Ochtendster (Morningstar). The spanish fleet of 21 ships, including 10 Galleons of the largest size, was led by Don Juan Alvarez de Avila. The Spanish flagship San Augustin (St. Augustine) was commanded by Don Juan´s son. Other ships were Nuestra Senora de la Vega (Our Lady of Vega) and Madre de Dios (Mother of God). Van Heemskerk left some of his ships at the bay entrance to prevent the excape of any Spanish ship. The attacking ships were ordered to focus on the Spanish flagship and the Dutch fleet stood into the bay. Van Heemskerk was killed during the first approach on the Spanish flagship as a cannon ball severed his leg. The Dutch lost 100 men including admiral Van Heemskerk. 60 Dutch were wounded. The Spanish lost their entire fleet, meaning 21 ships and 4.000 men, including Alvarez. A VERY SCARCE COPPERENGRAVING NOT FOUND IN THE WEB!!
