The building in Örebro where the treaties were signed in 1812

The Treaties of Orebro,[1] the full names being the Treaty of Peace, Union, and Friendship, between His Britannic Majesty and the Emperor of all the Russias and the Treaty of Peace, Union, and Friendship, between His Britannic Majesty and the King of Sweden, were both signed on the same day, 18 July 1812, in Örebro, Sweden. They formally end the Anglo-Russian War (1807–1812) and the Anglo-Swedish War (1810–1812).[2][3]

Notes[]

  1. The treaties were drawn up in French, the lingua franca of diplomacy at that time. Neither the original French nor the official English translation used a diacritic mark when spelling Örebro, so the official name is "Treaty of Orebro" (Great Britain Foreign and Commonwealth Office 1841, p. 13; Hansard 1812, pp. cols. 174, 175).
  2. Great Britain Foreign and Commonwealth Office 1841, pp. 13–17.
  3. Hansard 1812, pp. col. 174–177.
