The battle of Poitiers (Tours) in 732 AD

File Details
Game Version: Barbarian Invasion
During the battle of Poitiers, also known as battle of Tours, on October 10, 732, the Franks under Charles Martel defeated an Islamic army led by Abd er Rahman, Emir of Cordoba, who was killed.

Viewed by many historians as a battle of macrohistorical importance, Tours (Poitiers) checked further Arab expansion in western Europe, and strengthened the Carolingian's domination of the continent. The heartland of the Frankish state, between the Seine and the Rhine, was becoming the new center of western society and the new seat of imperial power after Charlemagne coronation as Emperor, the first emperor in the West since 476.
