De Leeuw van Waterloo is een herdenkingsmonument voor de Slag bij Waterloo (18 juni 1815) dat op initiatief van koning Willem I van het Verenigd Koninkrijk der Nederlanden werd opgericht.

The Lion's Mound is a large conical artificial hill located in the municipality of Braine-l'Alleud (Dutch: Eigenbrakel), Belgium. King William I of the Netherlands ordered its construction in 1820, and it was completed in 1826. It commemorates the location on the battlefield of Waterloo where a musket ball hit the shoulder of William II of the Netherlands (the Prince of Orange) and knocked him from his horse during the battle.
