From the Umayyad Caliphate to 22 Taifa Kingdoms

Here are two maps that I think best help conceptualize the major political transformation following the collapse of the Caliphate of Cordoba in 1031, following a Muslim civil war in al-Andalus. Without even reading the history, one can imagine the developments which occurred just by looking at these maps.
