Existing for more than 1,000 years, the Byzantine Empire, centered in the legendary city of Constantinople, was initially formed as the eastern seat of power for the mighty Roman Empire. As a source of great cultural growth along the eastern Mediterranean, its affluence allowed for grand displays of art, architecture, science, and music. The Byzantine Empire would rise to succeed Rome, becoming one of the most influential kingdoms on the world's stage.
