Explore the grand Waterloo Chamber at Windsor Castle where it will mark the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Waterloo and the defeat of Napoleon.
In celebration of Napoleon’s defeat, George IV created the grand Waterloo Chamber at Windsor Castle - a space filled with portraits of those instrumental in the victory, among them the Duke of Wellington.
Throughout 2015, Waterloo at Windsor: 1815 – 2015 will combine a themed trail through the State Apartments with a display of prints, drawings and material that explore the battle and its aftermath. The trail will highlight objects seized on the battlefield by the victors, including silver, furniture, weapons and the beautiful red cloak belonging to Napoleon, presented to George IV by Wellington's ally, Field-Marshal Gebhardt von Blücher.
