PTD Salutes Charles Martel

***Bringing Back Our History***

PTD and Resurgence Media will continue to salute the warriors, pioneers, innovators, great thinkers and leaders that helped form and shape our once great civilizations.

Today we salute you: Charles Martel (688741)

Charles Martel was a Frankish ruler whose military successes were a foundation of the Carolingian dynasty, who ruled what is now France until the tenth century. By 718 he had assumed his father’s place as the de facto ruler of Austrasia (Northern Kingdom of the Franks). Charles consolidated his power through military might — he earned the name Martel, which means “The Hammer.” His victory in October of 732 at the Battle of Tours is considered a major turning point in European history because it stopped the Muslim advance from Spain. Charles died in 741 and divided the control of his kingdom between his two sons, Pepin (known as Pepin the Short) and Carloman. Pepin was the first of the Carolingian line to claim the title king; Pepin’s son was Charlemagne.

  1. Good stuff Richie. I wish the spirit of Charles Martel would rise in every Frenchman. That would take care of the Muslim problem in France tomorrow. I hope you mention Vlad Tepes and Jan Sobieski. A couple more heroes our people can learn from.

    Of course they refer to the Europeans as barbarians. Yeah okay gotcha.
    French people need to learn their history.

    This is great, it’s so important to remember those who walked the paths before us, giving us what we have today! We can’t dwell there, but rather look to our proud past to reignite that fire that burns somewhere deep down inside of us all… Rekindle our glorious past to move us forward into the future with Power thru Discipline.


  4. Great article Rich! We need more of these historical figures shown to us as inspiration to follow them! Keep up the good work!
