Tratado de Madrid (1801)
Com relação aos domínios coloniais na América do Sul, por este diploma Portugal cedia ainda metade do território do Amapá à França, comprometendo-se a aceitar como fronteira entre o Brasil e a Guiana Francesa, o rio Arawani Araguari até à foz. Estas condições adicionais foram estabelecidas e ditadas por Napoleão.
- Fournier, p. 210. "A Spanish army reinforced by a French auxiliary corps was despatched across the Portuguese frontier, and on the 6th of June, 1801, John VI was forced to sign the treaty of Badajoz, which closed all Portuguese harbors to the English, and by a special convention, September 29th, he was bound to pay France twenty million francs."
- Brodrick and Fotheringham, p. 6. "A French army was despatched to Portugal and enabled Bonaparte to dictate the treaty of Madrid, signed on September 29, whereby Portugal ceded half Guiana to France and undertook, as at Badajoz, to close her ports against England."
