Storyboard Text

  • The Muslims in Spain for many years threatened French territories.
  • In 732 Abd er Rahman, governor of Spain, marched over the Pyrenees, possibly to end the unrest on his northern border, but more likely to plunder the Frankish territories
  • Charles positioned his army at a place where he expected the Muslim army to pass, at a defensive position. Possibly his tightly packed infantry, armed with swords, spears and shield formed a phalanx-like formation.
  • Yay!! We won!!
  • Only after extensive reconnaissance by Frankish soldiers of the Muslim camp did it turn out that the Muslims had retreated during the night.
  • The Arab army retreated back south over the Pyrenees.
  • The victory was celebrated by Frankish bakers who fashioned bread in the form of the Islamic crescent and served it up to celebrating Franks who devoured the symbol of the invader.
