Entente Cordiale

Categories: Peace, Politics & Administration

Countries: France

Up until the end of the Napoleonic Wars in 1815 Britain and France had been at war on and off for centuries. The Entente Cordiale ('cordial argreement' doesn't really do it justice) settled a number of long-standing issues: Egypt, Morocco, Senegal, Nigeria, Madagascar, Thailand, fishing rights in Newfoundland. King Edward VII's official visit to France in May 1903 was a significant step in achieving this agreement.
