It was near the city of Waterloo that Napoleon lost his last battle. There is now a lion statue on an artificial hill marking that spot. From top of the hill one has a nice view over the old battle fields. There is also a museum located next to it.
The lion is made from the steel of Napoleons canons. The emperor has been fought by the english, though they had much help, including the flemis that made up the first line in battle.
