  • The battle finally began on the seventh day, because the Muslims couldn't wait any longer with winter approaching, and their light clothing wasn't proper for freezing winters.
  • After Battle
  • Muslims heard Frankish cavalry warned them with the loot they held taken from Bordeaux. The majority of the Muslim army retreated back to camp and Abd er Rahman attempted to stop this retreat, but he was surrounded and killed.
  • Charles, from now on was nicknamed Martel forbeating a great Arab invasion and protecting Europe from Islamic conquering. He earned endless fame and respect.
  • Frankish bakers fashioned bread in the form of the Islamic crescent and served it up to celebrating Franks who devoured the symbol of the invader. Now its called a croissant and it’s Frances pride.
