Following the conquest Al-andalus was divided into five administrative areas roughly corresponding to Andulsia,Galicia and Lusitania,Castile and leon,Aragon and Catalonia,and Septimania.As a political domain or domains,it successively constituted a province of the Umayyad Caliphate,initiated by the Caliph Al Walid 1(711-750);the Emirate of Cordoba(c.750-929);the Caliphate of Cordoba(929-1031) and the Caliphate of Cordoba's taifa(successor )kingdoms.

In suceeding centuries,Al-Andalus became a province of Berber Muslim dunasties of the Almoravids and Almohads,subsequently fragmenting into a anumber of minor states,most notably the Emirate of Granada.For large parts of its history,prticularly under the Caliphate of Cordoba,Al-Andalus was the beacon of learning,and the city of Cordoba became one of the leading cultural and economic centres in bothe the Mediterranian bsin and the islamic world.
