  • Cromwell's Foreign Policy
    • Dutch- peace with Treaty of Westminster, 1654: enabled trade, made ally and cut off the Stuarts
    • Spain- failure of Western Design- didn't capture San Domingo but did Jamaica. 'God's disapproval'
    • France- generous Spanish treaty and Vaudois Massacre led to diplomatic pressure. France still became an ally.
    • Baltic- Cromwell protected trade interest by making peace with Denmark and Sweden in 1658.
    • As Capp argues, the navy was significantly increased and became effective in overcoming the majority of England's 'enemies'
    • Royalist Clarendon; 'greatness at home just a shadow of the glory he had abroad'
