AEI05 - Handcrafted vintage image of Charles "The Hammer" Martel, imprinted on a stone. He lived between 686 and 741 AD. He was the Frankish leader who halted the Muslim advance into Western Europe at the Battle of Tours on October 10, 732 AD. By defeating the Invading Moslems at the Battle of Tours, Charles Martel set the religious and cultural direction for Western Europe, and later the Americas, for generations to come. His grandson, Charlemagne, became King of the Franks in 768 AD and united most of Western Europe during the early Middle Ages, including laying the foundations for modern France and Germany.
