Galloping Through The Battle Ruins

Ask me anything   My name is Tom. I am a villainous, yet charismatic person with a love for wine, women, and song. I blaise like Pascal and I'm swift like Jonathan.

The Battle of Poitiers by Charles de Steuben (1837) 
The painting depicts the Battle of Poitiers (or Tours) in 732 where the Andalusian Muslims were defeated by Charles Martel, thus halting the Muslim advance into Europe.
(Charles Martel is the one on the horse holding the axe. Abdul Rahman Al Ghafiqi is the guy with the long white beard)
