NICE SHIP BUT VERY COOL AND VERY
i think it depends on where you come from. the English adour him but the spanish hate him. i like him he saved us from the Spanish. He may have done bad things but he did more good thean bad
I think h was a good man for his country, but not to others. But he was a good man.
Sir Francis Drake was a great man. To the Spanish, he was horrible, but remember IT WAS FOR ENGLAND!

I think he was one hot pirate. I mean, did you check out the sexy outfits he wore? Anyway. My point? I don't care if he was mean. HE WAS SEXY.
Thank God for Sir Francis Drake or we would all be writting and speaking in Spanish!
he was a cool type of guy did many things and a matter of fact i have one fact his fame was he was the only man to circumnavigate the globe and he was also one of the finest seaman of all time hey do you know where i cna get info for where he explored?
I think he was a genuis but a terrible person

Since when does a job justify terrible actions. (I really don't know about Drake; I never met him. From what I can see in his actions, though, he is not my kind of hero.) What I do know is that a hit man should still be arrested for murder, even if it was his job.

He wasnt a pirate... He was just really god at his job.
I think that he was a cruel mean man. his personality was awful
Sir Francis Drake was not mean or cruel he was just a normal pirate going out for gold like pirates do. So basically he was doing his job.
I've been working on a re search project and never knew my great....grandfather was so great.
But I just don't get how you all think he's mean when you are probably making front of someone right now or at least once tomorrow. So watch it b 4 u talk about a pirate to his granchild.
Dear host do you know who Sir Fracis Drke's parents are?
I think Sir Francis Drake is mean, rude,and selfish. But he should still be remembered for the good things he has done.
I think Francis Drake was a man who was very thoughtful. He wanted to be rich so he married a rich women... good thinking!!! lol beth
Englands first great naval hero and mariner. English folk of his time owed him thier nationality. We could do with the likes of Drake and Nelson at this time.

I think that he was a horrible person.
I think that Sir Francis Drake is diffrent from most people.

It all depends on where you are from and who you side with, whether he was a villan or a hero. If you were Spanish, you would probably consider him a villan.
Sir Francis Drake, is a symbol of British supremacy around the world......

I think Sir Francis Drake was a brave and smart man. I think this because it is scary to circumnavigate which means to sail around the world and he did it. He was smart because he didn't have school but he taught himself how to read.
do you have in pictures of him and slaves together
Reply from host: Hi Anthony.We have no access to any additonal pictures of Drake.
i don't really know but i think he was some times a good man and sometimes really cruel. a man who is sometimes really selfish, who does not think of anybody else, who just wants himself to be happy. for some people he was a nice man and for some he had been a cruel man. but after reading about him i also think he was a cruel mann.
Quel homme ! A man of his time who marked his era. Interesting to think what would happen if you did the same today... although it's never stopped, people ARE still doing the same things today, its just called something different, like... world trade.

what about the fortunes he made from being one of the first british slave traders.
this is rarely spoken of.

I think Drake was a man in the middle of the game. He was just following his dreams. I researched him in the fourth grade. I think it depends on the perspective of which you think of it.
I thought the name of his ship was the "Golden Hinde", and the Pelican before that?

I teach in Plymouth, Devon, and often see Sir Francis' statue on the Hoe. He is a very interesting person to learn about. I wonder what my pupils think about him?
i think his a hero and agreat one
Ssir Francis is fascinating to me. It is my understanding that he had a brother Thomas, whom he sent off to the new world. I am a descendant of Thomas. I want to know more of their history
drake was a very religious man. he worked for the queen by day and served his god the rest of the time. he was incredibly brave and he tried to help all he could. he was also a pirate. he went on a secret mission that has never been told, yet.
Jamie , Canada
I think he sort of seemed like a villan and a hero at the same time!!
Great Bowler as well
drake was a legend and thanks to him plymouth is still british today
it apperas he was a good man but i cant help but think that every thing he did was because of his own gain and not of the empire or england
R. COX, Aachen, Germany
I think Drake was typical of his age, neither all good or all bad. Rather like people today really!

I believe that Sir Francis Drake was a true English man to the core-brave, dashing and a bit of an old charmer.
He was frightfully daring and would sail the seven seas without a care in the world-a feat one would normally not even hjave imagined in those days.
He drove away the barbaric Spaniards who threatened to invade our fair isle and without hime England would not be England.
We salute you, Dear, dear ancestor and say bravo!
i think sir francis drake is a cool man
Bad Man Selfish!
yazmin from CA
I think that Drake was a good man.
Sir Francis Drake was essentially a privateer. At times his voyages can be cast as piratical. However, overall he contributed to Elizabethan maritime expansion.
georgios koppodopolos, rhodes
ah think he was a great a man, and a am a extremely grateful to thees a great a explorer for inventing de potatoe and de byyeecle
how old was drake when he died
Sir Francis Drake was a man who loved his money,but he was a very popular man
Sir Francis Drake was a man that sher loved his money and completley whanted all the land in the world to belong to the U.K I'm doing a project on him and Ifigerd out hes more a pirite than a guy that gets payed to do his stuff. he was no freind with the spanish he hated and killed all the soulders in cadis. he even maroned his owen crew memer John cooke. Sir FRancis Drake was not a good man.
Drake had met his goal for traveling around the world. He devoted his life to fight against the Spanish and did a good job doing so. I truly admire him for all he did.
Sir Francis Drake was a honored man. For both his vogage around the world and for being a part of the Spanish Armada. Though he was both feared and treasured, he was a good man at heart.
Rachel Headlee, Iowa
I think Sir Francis Drake is a wonderful man and he was never a villin. He was only trying to avenge his parents's death.
Sir Francis Drake was a perverbial thorn in the side of the Spanish armada
I think he was brilliant. Piracy funded by the crown is no piracy at all - just stealing.

sir francis drake is good!

i think he is a very popular man and he is generous and kind.
