    Despite the passage of almost exactly two centuries, the Waterloo campaign of June 1815 persists as an important historical milestone. The episode proved the final, sanguinary instalment in a prolonged period of European conflict and imbalance which had lasted for more than two and a half decades, since the outbreak of the French Revolution in 1789. Allied victory over Napoleon Bonaparte at Waterloo meant a permanent end to the First French Empire, and ushered in a welcome interlude of relative European stability and prosperity. Events in 1815 also signified a continued rise in influence for other continental powers, most notably Britain and Prussia.
