Maps of Constantinople
Constantinople, known as Istanbul today, was the capital of the Eastern Roman (Byzantine) Empire until the city fell to invading Turks in 1453. A glittering center of learning and trade as well as politics, Constantinople stood head and shoulders above all other western cities for centuries.
