The English maritime enterprise clashed early on with Iberian interests. The capture of the Portuguese vessel Madre de Deus in 1592 further convinced the English that the riches would also be theirs should they upset the Iberian trade monopoly in the East Indies. In late December 1600, Queen Elizabeth I authorised the foundation of the East India Company with a view to importing consumer goods and exporting English textiles. The arrival of the English vessels in Surat, starting in 1613, gave rise to more serious clashes with the Portuguese in later years.
