  • Notes 
    • Eind dec. 1813 in Nederland teruggekomen, werd Willem (de latere koning willem II) door zijn vader tot generaal van de infanterie benoemd. In deze functie commandeerde hij, geruggensteund door meer ervaren militairen als Bernard van Saksen-Weimar, Jean-Victor de Constant-Rebecque en Hendrik George de Perponcher, de Nederlands-Belgische troepen te Quatre-Bras en in de Slag bij Waterloo, waar hij licht gewond werd.

      Wellington ordered his troops in the area of Quatre Bras to move and concentrate in the direction of Mons but the Prince of Orange, along with many other high ranking individuals, was at the Duchess of Richmond's ball in Brussels. It was his Quartermaster-General Baron Jean de Constant-Rebecque who received and ignored the order and instead sent another brigade to reinforce Quatre Bras, had he not done so Wellington would have lost Brussels. On discovering that the French were nowhere near Mons Wellington kept his nerve and ordered all commanders to march on Quatre Bras.
