The Battle of Waterloo goes in history as the only battle on land that Naopleon Bonaparte fought and lost, and which proved to be his last. This year marks 200 years since the world's greatest statesman was defeated at the hands of Duke of Wellington on June 18, 1815. To remember this event and educate more people about one of the most important events in the history of Europe, a renactment of the battle was organized across the Belgian fields bringing alive the defeat of the French emperor who ruled almost the whole of the continent. Here are some stills from the reenactment.
