"Entente Cordiale", usually translated as "cordial understanding" was in fact a series of agreements signed on April 8, 1904 between the United Kingdom and the French Third Republic. It marked the end of almost a millenium of intermittent conflict between the two nations and their predecessor states. It formalized the peaceful co-existence that began at the end of the Napoleonic Wars in 1815.
