The battle of Waterloo was fought on 18 June 1815, near Brussels in Beigium. The British commander, Arthur Wellesley, Duke of Wellington, officially defeated the French Emperor, Napoleon Buonaparte. 68,000 men fought under Wellington; of these, 24000 were British, and the rest were mainly German, Belgian and Dutch. (The Prussian army, led by General Bluecher, were especially important to the campaign's success.) The French army had 72000 soldiers.
Waterloo signalled the end of the Napoleonic Wars, which had begun in 1803 with the Emperor's invasion of Malta, and involved most of the major European countries. There was only one brief period of peace; the Peace of Amiens, after Napoleon's defeat and exile (to Elba) in 1813. This period ended in 1815 when he escaped and returned to Paris.
After Waterloo, he was exiled again, this time to the island of St Helena, where he died in 1821.
