The Grande Armée's perfect victory over the Russian Army at Friedland had brought the Polish Campaign to an end. After an armistice signed on 20 June, the Czar Alexander I and the Emperor Napoleon I signed a peace treaty on 7 July, 1807, in the small town of Tilsit. Two days later a second treaty was signed with the Prussian king, Frederick William III.
