The Waterloo Chamber of Windsor Castle contains a carpet made for Queen Victoria in Agra, said to be the largest seamless carpet in Europe.
In Castles of Britain and Ireland, Rodney Castleden wrote:

King Edward III spent an incredible 50,000 pounds on Windsor, by far the largest sum any sovereign spent on any single building in the entire middle ages.
As part of Jeffry Wyatville's rebuilding, the Long Walk created by King Charles II to link the castle to Windsor Great Park was lengthened in 1823 to run right up to a new entranceway.
The entranceway was called the George IV Gateway.
King William II chose Windsor Castle for his Easter celebrations in 1097.

Windsor Castle is to mark the bicentenary of the Battle of Waterloo next year with an exhibition and themed visit featuring artefacts.

Richard Palmer @RoyalReporter ˇ 11m 11 minutes ago
From Jan 31, the State apartments at Windsor will display battlefield trophies, historic documents and items that once belonged to Napoleon.

The Waterloo Chamber, briefly renamed the music room when Jacques Chirac visited in 2004, will be the centrepiece of the exhibition.
