The Battle of Vouillé and the Map of Europe

More than 1500 years ago, in a field in central France, two armies clashed. At the head of each was an ambitious and powerful king, who planned to press their power, prestige and influence further than ever before. The battle they fought at Vouille in 507 A.D. had an enormous impact on the history of Europe, and was pivotal in drawing the borders of nations that appear so familiar on modern maps.
