1: Byzantium, the eternal. The unchanging. The centre of the world. Empire that was born of Rome, surpassing even that ancient glory. For over 2000 years the heirs of the Caesars ruled from their capital on the Bosphorus. There were dark days of terror and despair, many lands were lost to foes, but in the end the triumph was their's. An empire that was lost, had been regained. A flame long snuffed out, was rekindled. A glory once tarnished, had been reborn.
The Byzantine Empire was once known as the Later Roman Empire.
