Royal Navy: Information from Answers.com (5769 words)
The Royal Navy is the second largest navy in the world in terms of gross tonnage (the US Navy being the world’s largest) and the second largest in western Europe in terms of personnel, after the French Marine Nationale.
The head of the Royal Navy is the Lord High Admiral, the overall head of the Armed Forces is the British Sovereign with the two roles currently vested in the same individual, Queen Elizabeth II.
The first reformation and major expansion of the Navy Royal, as it was then known, occurred in the 16th century during the reign of Henry VIII whose ships, Henri Grâce a Dieu ("Great Harry") and Mary Rose, engaged the French navy in the battle of the Solent in 1545.
