Battle of Waterloo or Mont Saint-Jean (June 18, 1815)

During the 6th Alliance the Russian army entered Paris (March 30, 1814). Napoleon abdicated in Fontainebleau (April 11, 1814) and was sent into exile on the island of Elba. He returned to Cannes (March 1, 1815). He reorganized the army and fought at Waterloo against the 7th Alliance. He lost, and finally abdicated to be deported to the island of St. Helena in the South Atlantic.
