Cradle of Civilization

A Blog about the Birth of Our Civilisation and Development


The Byzantine Empire existed from 324 AD until  the fall of Constantinople on May 19th, 1453 AD. 
At its height it rivaled the size and power of the ancient Roman Empire.

 For over a thousand years it preserved ancient Roman and Hellenistic traditions, and
 gave rise to the Byzantine successor states of The Empire of Nicaea (1204-1261 AD)
the Despotate of Epirus (1205-1479 AD) and the Empire of Trebizond (1204-1461 AD).
