When SPQRball split into the Western Roman Empireball and the Byzantine Empireball, Byzantine Empireball made Constantinopleball its capital city. Constantinopleball was very rich and was famed for its defense although in 1204 it was taken and sacked by the Crusaders and for a while numerous sections of the fractured Crusader Constantinopleball were controlled by the Crusaders and the Latin Empire and competing Byzantine and Greek factions until the Byzantine Empire took back Constantinople, but after the retaking of Constantinopleball, Constantinople became poor and had a bad economy from all the years of Latin
heresy misrule and only it recovered a bit. This decline led to Constantinople slowly being anchlussed by the Ottoman Empire over the 15th century until Constantinople finally fell to the Ottomanball.
