  • For six days the two armies watched each other, with just minor skirmishes.
  • The Arabs had prepared less well for the intense cold but did not want to attack what they thought was a numerically superior Frankish army.
  • The fight commenced on the seventh day, as Abd er Rahman did not want to postpone the battle indefinitely.
  • Neither of them wanted to attack.
  • The Arab army retreated back south over the Pyrenees. Charles, who earned his nickname Martel (hammer) in this battle, drove the Muslims in the following years from the area between Arles and Avignon.
