La Belle Alliance

On the morning of June 18, 1815 the inn La Belle Alliance became Napoleon Bonaparte's Headquarters for the Battle of Waterloo.

The Duke of Wellington and Blücher met there some around 21:00 hours that evening, signifying that the battle was won. Blücher suggested calling the battle "La Belle Alliance", however Wellington insisted on the Battle of Waterloo.
