Great Library entry[]

Until the defeat of the Spanish Armada in 1588 at the hands of the British, Spain and Portugal monopolized the trading of spices from East India. On December 31, 1600, a royal charter incorporated the English East India Company as a monopolistic trading body formed for the exploitation of trade with East and Southeast Asia and India. Although they were successful, the company met with opposition from the Dutch in the Dutch East Indies (modern-day Indonesia) and the Portuguese. In 1623, Dutch authorities executed English, Japanese and Portuguese traders in what became known as the Amboina Massacre. After that, the Dutch excluded company members from the East Indies. Earlier, in 1612, the company defeated the Portuguese in India and won trading concessions from the Mughal Empire. They traded cotton, silk, indigo and saltpeter, in addition to spices from South India. It also extended its operations to the Persian Gulf, Southeast Asia and East Asia. Eventually, it involved itself in politics, acting on behalf of British imperialistic interests in India from the early 18th century to the mid-19th century, and expanding British influence in China in the 19th century.
