* REMARKS: In 732 defeated the Arabs at Poitiers * BIOGRAPHY Son of Pippin by his mistress Alpais, Charles was chosen Duke of Austrasia in 714. In 720 he became mayor of the palace of King Clothaire IV and was the true ruler of the Franks. His first battles were with the Saxons, Alemanni and Bavarians. However, his importance was established when he rolled back the Saracens in a desperate battle between Tours and Poitiers in 732. Prior to this battle, Abdul Rahman, the Arab governor of Spain, had won a great battle near Bordeaux. This Moslem threat united the Burgundians and the Gauls of Provence, who then acknowledged the sovereignty of Charles Martel, recognising him as their saviour from the Moslem conquests. The battle at Poitiers is important because it halted the Moslem conquest of Europe. Charles finished his work by driving the Saracens out of Burgundy and the Languedoc in 737. Charles never aspired to be more than 'mayor of the palace' and duke of Austrasia. When he died in 741, his sons Carloman and Pippin, still joint mayors of the palace, shared power over the kingdom of the Franks with Merovingian King Childeric III of the Franks.
