[[The Spanish Armada in Ireland : in 1588, Phillip II sent his armada to invade England. However, the spanish were defeated, and decided to head back home through the North Atlantic. Of course, they didn’t plan the violent storms that made them CRASH on the west coast of Ireland. Because of it, English government freaked out, thinking the irish who were being conquered at the time would join the spanish. Yet, when they realized the armada crashed, so Fitzwilliam just ordered that all spaniards be captured and hanged, while anyone helping them be tortured and charged as a traitor to the Crown. From England with love.]]

headcanon is that younger Spain would’ve been put in Slytherin in a heartbeat - but present day Spain is a prime example of a Gryffindor, complete with charging into windmills. he wouldn’t like the colours of Slytherin anyway. too English.
well. that, and the line between Slytherin and Gryffindor is thin as is.
