Jim and daughter Danna in front of Spain’s royal palace in Madrid. King Philip II moved his capitol here and built the palace in 1561. About 27 years later, from here he ordered the Spanish Armada to sail against England; and here he received news of his fleet’s destruction. (The Queen’s Pirate and The Story of the World, Vol. 2)
