- Anyone visiting the battlefield at Waterloo will hear and see nothing else but Napoleon and Wellington. The British got away
with expropriating Waterloo for 200 years. In reality the battle of Waterloo was lost by Napoleon not on the 18th of June
but on the 16th at Quatre-Bras where the Prince of Orange stopped the French advance towards Brussels.
