Mulanay is politically subdivided into 28 barangays.
A 10th-century burial site was discovered in the Kamhantik forest which signified an early settlement around the mountain.
Some legends would relate Mulanay to have derived its name from the Tagalog word Malunay, which means "Plenty of Lunay". Lunay is the vernacular term for Pili wax, which was abundant in the area.
In 1600, Franciscan missionaries evangelized the area for the Roman Catholic Church. However, its civil foundation as a municipality effected only in 1745 thru the approval of the King of Spain as contained in his royal decree. This town at that time, encompasses the municipal territories of San Narciso, San Francisco, Catanauan and which if measured will be as big as the province of Bataan. The original town of Mulanay was composed of only six barangays.
The first town head of Mulanay during the Spanish regime was Alcalde Mayor Bustaquio Manlangit, while the first town mayor during the American occupation was Mayor Atanacio Ojeda. At present, Mulanay is composed of a total 28 barangays, four of which comprised the town proper.
