This subcategory contains sites about the Byzantine Empire, created by the second partition of the ancient Roman Empire and with its capital at Constantinople. The term "Byzantine" is a popular usage deriving from Byzantium, the former name of Constantinople. It was never used by contemporaries, who referred to it as simply the Eastern Roman Empire until its fall to the Ottomans in 1453 AD. - choster
