Waterloo is the name of a city- though at the time it could hardly be dignified with the title of village - in Belgium. It was the principal site of the great battle where the allied forces of Europe defeated the final attempt of Napoleon Buonaparte to conquer them. The Battle of Waterloo took place there in June 1815.
