Why was there a Battle of Trafalgar?

Britain and France had been at war with each other a long time.

In 1802, both countries signed a truce but neither expected it to last and it didn't.

In 1804 the war began again, and this time Napoleon (on the French side) intended to invade Britain.

It was Nelson's job to stop him.
