The Battle of Waterloo was fought on Sunday, 18 June 1815 near Brussels. A French army under the command of Napoleon Bonaparte (1769-1821) was defeated by two of the armies of the Seventh Coalition: an army consisting of units from the United Kingdom, the German Legion, the Netherlands, Hanover, Brunswick and Nassau, under the command of the First Duke of Wellington (1769–1852), referred to by many authors as the Anglo-allied army, and a Prussian army under the command of Field Marshal Gebhard Leberecht von Blücher (1742–1819). The battle marked the end of the Napoleonic Wars. Enjoying success and power as a wartime leader, king, and emperor, Napoleon Bonaparte was in the end undone by his own ruthless ambitions, suffering a humiliating defeat at Waterloo in 1815.
