Byzantine Empire.(map)
Constantinople became a capital of the Roman Empire in 330 A.D. after Constantine the Great, the first Christian.emperor, refounded the city of Byzantium and named it after himself.
The Byzantine Empire was the eastern part of the Roman Empire, which survived after the breakup of the Western Empire in the 5th century A.D. Its capital was Constantinople, now Istanbul, Turkey. Its predominant language was Greek. The Byzantine Empire has a long history 330-1453, having evolved from the Roman Empire's eastern territories after the western regions of the Roman Empire fell in the 5th century A.D. Initial harmony between church and state fortified the early empire during the 4th-6th centuries. The Crusades taxed the territories during the 11th century, precipitating a decline. Constantinople, the capital, fell in 1204 to Ottoman Turks, who conquered the last remnants of the Byzantine Empire in the early 14th century.....comprised from Microsoft® Encarta® Encyclopedia 99. © 1993-1998 Microsoft Corporation.
