In June 1563 he married Katherine Carey, Henry Carey’s eldest daughter,Baron Hunsdon, later Lord Chambelán. It is a curiosity of history that the patrons of the two most important theater companies at the height of Elizabethan Drama (1594-1603), the Admiral’s Men and the Lord Chamberlain’s Men, were son-in-law and father-in-law.

He succeeded his father as II Baron Howard of Effingham in 1573.

He commanded a squadron of ships escorting the Queen of Spain on a state visit in 1570. He was appointed commissar at the trial of Queen Mary Stuart in 1586 and subsequently recommended his execution.

Effingham was appointed Lord Grand Admiral in 1585, at the time of the Anglo-Spanish War. In 1587, he was appointed supreme commander of the English fleet against the Invincible Armada although he was not directly in charge in the battle. Effingham ordered an indirect strategy of harassment of the Spanish fleet instead of attacking it directly. Although controversial, the strategy worked.

In 1596, when another Spanish invasion was feared, Effingham was again appointed to defend England. Effingham, along with Robert Devereux, II Earl of Essex, led the Anglo-Dutch attack on June 30 against the Spanish base of Cadiz, which would result in the taking and looting of the city. In reward for the victory of Cádiz, he was named Earl of Nottingham on October 22, 1596 and later appointed Lord Grand Lord of England.

When the Earl of Essex rebelled in 1601, Effingham defeated him on the battlefield and served as commissioner at his later trial.
