Constantinople

The Richest City in the Byzantine Empire!

Geography

Constantinople is a peninsula, which makes it much easier to defend from attackers than most cities! This, coupled with massive, impenetrable walls and huge army, ensures the safety of all of Constantinople's citizens!

Religion

While there is some unrest between the East and West Christian church, our emperor will ensure that you are able to worship freely during your stay, however long or short that may be!

Daily Life

Daily life in Constantinople is extremely luxurious; being the trade center of the empire, the city’s abundant marketplaces are always overflowing with extravagances such as furs, perfumes, ivory and more! One can barely contain one’s excitement from day to day.

Government

Since Constantinople is the capital of the entire Byzantine Empire, there is never lack of order. The Church is deeply involved with the government, and our emperor gives public speeches and parades!
