Battle of Tours - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2074 words)
The Battle of Tours (often called the Battle of Poitiers, but not to be confused with the Battle of Poitiers, 1356) was fought on October 10, 732 between forces under the Frankish leader Charles Martel and an Islamic army led by Emir Abd al Rahman, near the city of Tours, France.
In 732, the Arab raiding force was proceeding north toward the River Loire.
A possible motive, according to the second continuator of Fredegar, was the riches of the Abbey of Saint Martin of Tours, the most prestigious and holiest shrine in western Europe at the time.
