Eudes wedded his daughter to Othmar, an Islamic emir, this caused an alliance between the Muslims and the Franks. This alliance angered the Frankish Mayor of the Palace, Charles. After Othmar's death in 731, the peace treaty ended.
The battle occurred 7 days after the initial confrontation and took 1 to 2 days. The Muslims attempted to retreat but when their leader (Abd er Rahman) tried to stop them, he was surrounded and killed.
After this fight, the Muslims didn't do too well without Abd er Rahman and fought with each other. This battle has been debated as being overrated or a significant battle in history by historians.
