The Lion's hamlet was part of the Waterloo battlefield where French and English troops fought on June 15, 1815.

This historical site is situated in the province of Brabant Wallon, a mere 20 km drive from Brussels. It can be found at the base of the Lion's Mound, the monument that marks the front line of the battle between French and English troops.
