Authority of Aws And Khazraj in Medina

Why did the Aws and Khazraj have the upper hand in Medina?

The Aws and Khazraj were the largest tribes in Medina, outnumbering the Jews and other smaller religious and tribal groupings. Owing to the Bu’ath war removing many of the leaders of both of these tribes, the acceptance of Islam and Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) as a leader unified and raised them in their greatness, thus giving them their continued general power in Medina.
