Battle of Waterloo
After Napoleon Bonaparte had been exiled to the Italian island of Elba in 1814, he managed to escape some months later and, with a hastily collected army, marched towards the French-Belgian border. However, this army was not strong enough against the Allied forces and Bonaparte had to admit defeat. Initially, Napoleon tried to flee, but he was arrested by the Allied forces and was banished again. This time to the island of St. Helena, where he died six years later.
