This battle was fought against the French and the 7th Coalition, which comprised of the U.K., Netherlands, Hanover, Nassau, Brunswick, and Prussia. This battle was fought in modern day Belgium. Emperor Napoleon was pitted against 118,000 troops were only he himself had 72,000 in his command. It turned out the way they all thought it would, a very bloody battle for the French where they lost about 75% of the men who were there. This loss culminated the end of power for Emperor Napoleon and sent him to exile. Does not apply to the Declaration.
