Battle of Waterloo 200th anniversary: Learn more at Windsor Castle exhibition

The 200th anniversary of the Battler of Waterloo continues to be celebrated at Windsor Castle.

Waterloo at Windsor: 1815-2015 is an exhibition that marks the bicentenary of the famous battle and includes items seized from the battlefield, historic documents from the Royal Collection and the Royal Archives, and contemporary prints and drawings.

The Battle of Waterloo, which took place in Belgium on June 18, 1815, marked the final defeat of French military leader and Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte who conquered much of continental Europe in the early 19th century.

Also on display is Napoleon's letter of surrender which was written to Prince Regent, 25 days after the allied victory at Waterloo and signed by the Emperor himself.

Set within the setting of some of Windsor castle's most magnificent rooms the exhibition is free for Royal Borough Advantage Card holders.

It is on display until January next year.
