Prepare to defend
For several years, the Muslims who inhabited Spain intimidated the French territories. Therefore, they were banned from Frank territories in 721 by Duke Eudes.
Retreat! The Franks are too strong!
Duke Eudes had his daughter married to Othmar, who was an Islamic emir at the time. The Islamic people were the enemy. This angered Charles Martel(Mayor of the Palace), so then he defeated Eudes.
In the battle of Tours, which was the Franks against Muslims, Charles Martel led the Franks and Abd er Rahman led the Muslims. Charles placed his army in a defensive position where he knew the Muslim army would pass.
After some days of insecurity on whether or not the Muslims were going to ambush the Franks, the Franks finally figured out that the Muslims had retreated during the night. Therefore, the Franks had won the Battle of Tours.
Charles Martel and his army pushed the invading Muslims out from the region between Avignon and Arles. Even after this Martel and his unstoppable army beat the Muslims again near the River Berre.
The Frankish bakers celebrated this victory by baking a certain type of bread in the shape of the Islamic crescent. This was served to everyone and all the Franks devoured the symbol of the enemy.
