al-Walid I - Caliph of Al-Khilāfatu al-ʾUmawiyyah from 705 AD to 715 AD
Al-Walid ibn Abd al-Malik or Al-Walid I was an Umayyad Caliph who ruled from 705 until his death in 715. He was the son of Abd al-Malik ibn Marwan, the 5th Ummayad Caliph.

His reign saw the greatest expansion of the Caliphate, as successful campaigns were undertaken in Transoxiana in Central Asia, Sind, Hispania in far western Europe, and against the Byzantines. He poisoned the fourth Shi'a imam, Zayn al-Abidin.

Sulayman succeeded his brother Walid after he died in 715. He was buried in the Bab al-Saghir cemetery in Damascus. His grave is still present to this date.
