There's no evidence as to exactly how they 'hated' each other.......but one instance that can be given is that when Duke Frederick assembles an army against Duke Senior when he had been residing in the forest of Arden(but he ultimately aborts his vengeful mission when he meets an old religious man)

As to whether they forgive each other or not....there's no mention of this in the play
