Constantinople was originally the capital of the Byzantine Empire (the eastern half of the Roman Empire). It was then captured by the Ottoman Empire in 1453. The Ottomans were led by Sultan Mehmet II who then changed the name of Constantinople to Istanbul and also made it the capital of the Ottoman Empire. The Ottoman Empire then fell in during World War One and became the Republic of Turkey. Today, the capital of Turkey is still Istanbul and is a center of culture because of how Turkey is in both Asia and Europe.

This is yet another way to say that Constantinople is no longer around. Constantinople and Istanbul are the same place but run by two different empires. Constantinople was run by the Byzantine Empire until the 15th century, and then the Ottoman Turks invaded and defeated them. Once the Turks took over, they renamed the city Istanbul.

This happened in cases such as when New Amsterdam became New York and when Fort Orange became Albany, New York.
