My visit to Waterloo, Belgium.


Those of us who did European history would have heard of the famous Battle of Waterloo. To the present set of Malaysian student this would be something new.

The Battle of Waterloo took place in June, 1815 in Waterloo which was then part of the United Kingdom of the Netherlands. Now Waterloo is part of Belgium.

In this battle the armies under the command of the Duke of Wellington defeated the then ‘invincible’ Napoleon Bonaparte, who was the emperor of the then French empire. This defeat caused Napoleon to end his rule as the emperor.

Waterloo today is a very scenic place.  Great green fields surround the Mound erected to commemorate the battlefield.
