The Muslims of Spain have been threatening the Frankish peoples French territory for multiple years. The Frankish people are now developing an army to protect their land.
In 732 A.D. Abd er Rahman governor of Spain, marched with his army to most likely invade the Frankish territories.
The Muslims then arrived in Frankish terriorty and the Frankish army was out and ready. For six days they watched each other without moving at all. None of them wanted to attack. The Frankish army was well dressed for the cold. But, the Muslims were not ready.
On the seventh day, they attacked each other. The Battle of Tours has officially began.
After the leader of the Muslim army was surrounded and killed the Muslims ran and retreated away from Frankish territory.
If the Frankish army has lost this war than the Muslims would have taken over Europe. So they really saved the Catholic religion for becoming extinct.
