The idea that this town is symbolising the battle of 1815 – a war between the french (Napoleon) and allied armies of England (Wellington) and Prussia (Blücher) is in fact a little tourist misunderstanding or trap.
“The Lion hill”-symbol of Waterloo is a remembrance of the Dutch king Willem to his wounded son – also called Willem and Prince of Orange.
The hill is artificial and result of hard labour by women – obliged to carry the sand to the top.
