Article title

Great Britain and France on the Way to the Entente Cordiale


Title variants

Languages of publication



The Entente Cordiale, which ended tension between France and England in extra‑European territories, became a milestone towards the birth of the Triple Alliance and Triple Entente, two blocks which later clashed in the First World War. Based on the study of published and non‑published documents, this contribution tries to analyze the motives that permitted the Anglo‑French rapprochement from 1898–1904. Attention is paid especially to the Egyptian and Moroccan points of contention between France and Great Britain, which were of crucial and strategic importance for the development of Anglo‑French relations. When France abandoned the policy of pinprick agitation in Egypt in exchange for the policy of a free hand in Morocco, a new era in the Anglo‑French relations was opened.
