De Ruyter is best known for his role in major naval battles. In battles against Spaniards, Frenchmen and Englishmen and hijackers he turns out to have an excellent insight. Because of his successes, he was eventually appointed commander-in-Chief of the Dutch fleet. His most famous action was the Raid on the Medway in England.
In 1676 De Ruyter dies, 69-years-old, in the fight against the French at Syracuse. He is the most famous and one of the most skilled admirals in Dutch history.
