  • In 732 Abd er Rahman, governor of Spain, marched over the Pyrenees, a mountain range in Europe, with his people to loot the Frankish territories.
  • During the Battle
  • The Arab army continued their rampage after they crossed the Garonne. Their army went through all places like desolating storms. Duke Eudes brought together his army before Bordeaux, near where Abd er Rahman defeated Eudes

  • The location of this battle remains unknown. Charles positioned his army at a location where he expected the Muslim army to pas. He put them at a defensive position, with his tightly packed infantry, armed with swords, spears and shield formed a phalanx-like formation
  • Results of the Battle
  • Let's all celebrate by eating some crossiants!!
  • For six days, the two armies watched each other, with just little fights. Neither of them wanted to attack. The Franks were well prepared for the cold, and had the better land. The Arabs were less prepared for the freezing weather, and did not want to attack the Frankish Army. Finally, the fight started on the seventh day.
  • The Arab army retreated back south over the Pyrenees. Charles(the hammer), drove the Muslims in the following years from the area between Arles and Avignon. 
  • The victory was celebrated by Frankish bakers who fashioned bread in the form of a crescent and served it up to celebrating Franks. Today, the French croissant still has a place on most French breakfast tables.
