English: Constantinople was the capital of the Roman Empire (330-395), the Byzantine/East Roman Empire (395-1204 and 1261-1453), the Latin Empire (1204-1261), and the Ottoman Empire (1453-1922). It was officially renamed to its modern Turkish name Istanbul in 1930. Strategically located between the Golden Horn and the Sea of Marmara at the point where Europe meets Asia, Byzantine Constantinople had been the capital of a Christian empire, successor to ancient Greece and Rome. Throughout the Middle Ages Constantinople was Europe's largest and wealthiest city, known as the Queen of Cities (Vasileuousa Polis).
Italiano: Costantinopoli fu la capitale dell'Impero romano (330-395), dell'Impero romano d'Oriente detto anche bizantino (395-1204 e 1261-1453), dell'Impero latino (1204-1261), e dell'Impero Ottomano (1453-1922). Ebbe ufficialmente il moderno nome turco di Istanbul nel 1930. Era strategicamente collocata tra il Corno d'oro e il Mar di Marmara, nel punto dove l'Europa tocca l'Asia; la Costantinopoli bizantina fu la capitale di un impero cristiano e succssore dell'antica Grecia e dell'antica Roma. Nel Medio evo Costantinopoli fu la più estesa e ricca città d'Europa, nota come la "Regina delle città" (Vasileuousa Polis).
Ελληνικά: Η Κωνσταντινούπολη, και σήμερα διεθνώς Ιστα[ν]μπούλ (στα τουρκικά İstanbul), είναι η πολυπληθέστερη πόλη της Τουρκίας και κύριο πολιτισμικό και οικονομικό κέντρο της. Ίσως είναι η πιο γνωστή ιστορική πόλη του κόσμου μετά τη Ρώμη και την Αθήνα.
