Waterloo is an historic town in central Belgium where William II of the Netherlands (the Prince of Orange) was knocked from his horse by a musket ball to the shoulder during a battle. A large conical monument ("The Butte du Lion", "Hillock of the Lion" or "Lion's Mound") was raised on Waterloo 's battlefield to commemorate this historical event.

Thinking of Abba? Well, this place really exists. It's south of Brussels and of course it is famous for one of napoleon's Battles. You'll find a green hill with a lion statue on top, and they say that the hill is full of old (fire)arms.

Rendez-vous avec l'Histoire! Monter au Lion pour la vue et imaginer les hommes qui s'entretuent... Cher. Mieux vaut aller boire un verre en face et croiser des figurants en habits d'époque...
