  • For many years, the Muslims from Spain had threatened the French territory.Duke Eudes had banned them from his territory in 721 A.D. but that would all soon change.
  • The Muslims had come back to take the French territories. During the battle, Duke Eudes was defeated near Bordeux, and Abd er Rahman continued on to the River Loire.
  • Yes Charles Martel is defated!
  • Both the Frankish, and the Muslims army had been having minor skirmishes for six days. Finally, on the seventh day, Abd er Rahman started up the battle.
  • Right before Abd er Rahman was surrounded and killed, his army started retreating. The Franks didn't realize until after they had already retreated that they had defeated the Muslim army.
  • If Charles Martel had not defeated the Muslim army, they would've easily taken over Europe. No other armies in Europe would be able to defeat the Muslim cavelry.
  • Because the Franks won The Battle of Tours, Frankish bakers made a pastry out of the Islamic crescent so that they were devouring the symbol of their invader. These pastries turned into the croissant which we still eat to this day.
