Muslims were threatening Frankish Territories while in Spain.

The Frankish army was in a defensive position and was able to fend off the cavalry on the 7th day of holding/first day of the battle.
The Frankish army ended the battle in 1 day by forcing the Muslims to retreat and killing their leader.
This victory prevented the chance of the Muslims taking over parts of Europe.
The Franks celebrated by creating a bread shaped like the Islamic Crescent to eat which has now transformed into a croissant.
