Abstract

Charlotte Waldie (1788–1859) was on a family visit to Brussels, coinciding with the Waterloo Campaign. She wrote an account of her experiences, published in 1817. This is one of the few firsthand accounts of an upper-class women, observing of the famous Battle of Waterloo. Her writing was published anonymously first in 1817 and republished multiple times after submission. It offers a rare insider’s view of one of Europe’s most famous battles from the perspective of an extraordinary woman who was ahead of her time in spirit and vision. In 1822, Charlotte Waldie married Stephen Eaton, a banker of Ketton Hall, Rutland. He died on 25 September 1834. They had two sons and two daughters.
