As France bordered both Germany and Italy they feared that this alliance could be dangerous so they allied themselves to Russia in an effort to discourage Germany from attacking. This alliance was consolidated by the fact that they both relied heavily on each other financially. Britain soon joined them by making informal agreements with France and Russia to work together in 1904 and 1907 respectively. The alliance was named the Triple Entente. The Triple Entente frightened Germany and so they began building up their Navy to match Britain.
