aranjuez

In 1801, during the Napoleonic period, the city of Aranjuez, a city closely linked to the Spanish monarchy, was the scene of the treaty signed between Spain and France, with the aim of fighting together against British interests, thus allowing the Napoleonic army to cross the Spanish borders. These events led Spain and France to fight the British Navy in the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.
