  • Oh no! The Franks are coming to attack us!
  • Then we will go over to the Pyrenees and plunder their territories!!!

  • For some years the muslims living in spain had threatened french territories
  • 1 day!
  • 2 days!
  • In 732 the governor of Spain, Abd er Rahman, went over the Pyrenees, but more likely to plunder the Frankish territories, but perhaps to end the unrest on his northern border.
  • The battles actual location is not known. Most historians presume that the two armies met each other where the rivers Clain and Vienne join between Tours and Poitiers.
  • Frankish sources say the battle lasted one day, Arab sources say it lasted two days.
  • If Martel had fallen, then the Muslims could easily have just conquered Europe.
  • The Arab army retreated back south over the Pyrenees. Charles Martel (received his nickname hammer in this battle), drove the Muslims in the following years from the area between Arles and Avignon.
