of the Ottoman Empire. The dwindling Byzantine Empire came to an end when the Ottomans breached Constantinople’s ancient land wall after besieging the city for 55 days.
A first it was called “New Rome” but then changed to Constantinople meaning “City of Constantine.” In 1453 the Ottomans (now known as Turks) captured the city and renamed it İslambol (“the city of Islam). The name İstanbul was in use from the 10th century onwards.
The diversion of the Fourth Crusade from the Holy Land to attack, capture, and pillage the Byzantine city of Constantinople divided and dissipated the efforts of the Christians to maintain the war against the Muslims. It is widely regarded as a shocking betrayal of principles out of greed.
Q: How did the Ottoman Empire take over Constantinople? The key to the Ottoman Turks conquering Constantinople was the cannon constructed by Orban, a Hungarian artillery expert, that pounded the walls of Constantinople and eventually broke them down, allowing the Ottoman army to breach the city.
In fact it is well known why the Turks renamed the city – Constantinople was named after the Roman Emperor Constantine, the first emperor to convert to Christianity. … There was no love lost between the Romans (and their successors) and the Turks.
Constantine I was one of the famed emperors of Rome and the first to profess Christianity. He ruled during the 4th century, and some of his important accomplishments include his support of Christianity, construction of the city of Constantinople, and the continuance of the reforms of Diocletian.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan gave a municipal election campaign speech in 2019 saying that Istanbul will never be called “Constantinople” again.
Constantinople, depicted here being attacked by crusaders in 1204, was the capital of the Byzantine Empire from the fourth century to 1453. … In 1203, therefore, an army of crusaders sailed to the city in Venetian ships, and captured it for the first time.
Constantinople was besieged thirty-four times throughout its history. Out of the ten sieges that occurred during its time as a city-state and while it was under Roman rule, six were successful, three were repelled and one was lifted as a result of the agreement between the parties.
Constantine the Great played a major role in the development of the Christian Church in the 4th century.

He is known as Constantine the Great for very good reasons. After nearly 80 years, and three generations of political fragmentation, Constantine united the whole of the Roman Empire under one ruler. By 324 he had extended his power and was sole emperor, restoring stability and security to the Roman world.
Emperor Constantine I established the rights of the Church in the year 315.

The city of Constantinople is an ancient city that exists today in modern Turkey as Istanbul.
