Textbooks of history, popular literature, historical movies call to us the same event – fight at Waterloo. We so got used to this template, what even we do not try to learn how affairs that day, unsuccessful for Napoleon, actually were. Meanwhile historic facts testify that no fight at Waterloo existed.
Actually battle between troops of allies and Napoleon in 1815, of course, was, but only it happened not in Waterloo. And different interpretations by definition of a place of battle began still then: French called it fight at Maun-Saint-Jean, and Germans (then called them Prussians) called it battle at Bel Alliance, for the reason, that near this settlement there was Blyukher's meeting and Wellington.
The name – fight at Waterloo, received this battle thanks to the English ordering duke to Wellington, whose rate settled down in Waterloo. In the innocence the duke Wellington believed, most likely, that all events, in this world occur only round his person and therefore in the reports and memoirs it this battle differently as fight at Waterloo did not mention. So there was a historical delusion which removed to textbooks of history subsequently.
