Founded under the name of Byzantion (Βυζάντιον) on the Sarayburnu promontory around 660 BCE,
Istanbul grew in size and influence, having become one of the most important cities in history.
After its reestablishment as Constantinople in 330 CE, it served as an imperial capital for almost 16 centuries,
during the Roman/Byzantine (330–1204 and 1261–1453), the Latin (1204–1261), and the Ottoman (1453–1922) empires.
It was instrumental in the advancement of Christianity during Roman and
Byzantine times, before the Ottomans conquered Istanbul in 1453 CE and transformed it into
an Islamic stronghold and the seat of the Ottoman Caliphate.
