Battle of Tertry (687)

The Battle of Tertry took place near Peronne in France in 687. The powerful Austrasian mayor of the palace, Pepin of Heristal or Pepin II the Middle decisively defeated the allied forces of Berthar, the mayor of the palace of Neustria and Burgundy and Theuderic III, King of the Franks. Pepin became de facto ruler of Frankish Kingdom and established a base for future rise of the Pippinids and Carolingian dynasty.
