The Battle of Trafalgar (21 October 1805) was a naval engagement fought by the Royal Navy against the combined fleets of the French and Spanish Navies, during the War of the Third Coalition (August–December 1805) of the Napoleonic Wars (1803–1815).

Twenty-seven British ships of the line led by Admiral Lord Nelson aboard HMS Victory defeated thirty-three French and Spanish ships of the line under the French Admiral Villeneuve in the Atlantic off the southwest coast of Spain, just west of Cape Trafalgar, in Caños de Meca. The Franco-Spanish fleet lost twenty-two ships, without a single British vessel being lost. It was the most decisive naval battle of the war, conclusively ending French plans to invade England.

The British victory spectacularly confirmed the naval supremacy that Britain had established during the eighteenth century and was achieved in part through Nelson's departure from the prevailing naval tactical orthodoxy.[3] This involved engaging an enemy fleet in a single line of battle parallel to the enemy to facilitate signalling in battle and disengagement, and to maximise fields of fire and target areas. Nelson instead divided his smaller force into two columns directed perpendicularly against the enemy fleet, with decisive results.

Nelson was shot by a French musketeer during the battle and died shortly after, becoming one of Britain's greatest war heroes. Villeneuve was captured along with his ship Bucentaure. Admiral Federico Gravina, the senior Spanish flag officer, escaped with the remnant of the fleet and succumbed months later to wounds sustained during the battle. Villeneuve attended Nelson's funeral while a captive on parole in Britain.

went on to search on each captain.
Villeneuve was murdered (the report stated that it was a suicide) while in parole in France in 1806.
It is said that Napoleon ordered his assassination.

Annually, November 2 is a painful and traumatic date for Palestinians and humanity. It marks the anniversary of Britain's shameful issuance of the Balfour Declaration. In releasing the Declaration, Britain provided the 1st "legal" document sanctioning the creation of a newcolonial project centered on Zionist aspirations for Palestine and their dream of a Jewish National Homeland at the expense of 700.000 indigenous Arabs.

On November 6, 1494, Suleyman I, sultan of the Ottoman Empire, was born in Trabzon in what is today Turkey. Suleyman I led the Ottoman Empire for more than 45 years, and became one of the most powerful monarchs in 16th-century Europe, Asia, or Africa. Today, the sultan is known as “Suleyman the Magnificent.” [source]


His last (and one of the few) defeats was in Malta in 1565, a year before he died.
