Napoleon - Tsar Alexander sent an envoy to seek an armistice with Napoleon

Time: Friday Jun 19, 1807

Place: Tilsit (Present Day Sovetsk, Kaliningrad Oblast, Russia)

Details: On 19 June, Tsar Alexander sent an envoy to seek an armistice with Napoleon. The latter assured the envoy that the Vistula River represented the natural borders between French and Russian influence in Europe. On that basis, the two emperors began peace negotiations at the town of Tilsit after meeting on an iconic raft on the River Niemen. The very first thing Alexander said to Napoleon was probably well-calibrated: "I hate the English as much as you do".
