Storyboard Text

  • Dad! Orthar has died! What do we do?
  • Oh no, the peace between us and the Muslims will surely perish! We must prepare for their arrival.
  • This means war.
  • Well, go already! I've been waiting for like six days!
  • Is this going to take long...because I have a family to get back to so...
  • Muslims in Spain threatened Frankish territory. To make peace, Duke Eudes wedded his daughter to a Muslim leader Orthar. But, when Orthar died, the peace ended.
  • The Muslims begin crossing the Frankish borders of the Pyrenees Mountains, looking for war.
  • Ha! We did it!
  • The Frankish and Arab armies met, Charles Martel leading the Franks and Abd er Rahman leading the Arabs. Both waited for the other side to attack for six days.
  • Yay! We won!
  • On the seventh day, they fought. Abd er Rahman was killed in battle.
  • The Arabs retreated as Charles Martel chased them out of Frankish borders.
  • The Franks celebrated their victory with a knew type of bread called the croissant. They made it in the shape of the Islamic symbol, the army that they "devoured" in battle.
