I suppose it does not. I'm in a 12v12 team-game. I've made two declaration of friendships with 2 members of team 2 (me being on team 1 of course). As you can see from my screenshot, you only receive the bonus specifically from the DoF which does not include teammates. Unfortunately :(

For some Steam Achievements, you'll need to win on Deity (e.g. Mehmet the Conqueror). Even on Emperor it's quite hard already. I can only agree to the rough guidelines stated above.

If I've learned anything from my 740 hours of playing civ ...
There is a wealth of advice and strategy articles in the CivFanatics forums, including technical articles detailing the game mechanics. These were invaluable for getting me to Emperor in Civ4 and really boosted my enjoyment of the game. Here is general advice you can use throughout the game and that applies particularly well in the early game. Expansion ...
