      Constantine I moved the Roman capital from Rome to Constantinople, in what is today Turkey. Meekly enough, he named the new city after himself. The goal was to try to get closer to eastern pagan wealth and further from the European barbarians sacking Rome. By 361, Constantinople had a population of 300,000, making it larger than rapidly shrinking Rome. Constantinople would go on to profit from its location between east & west as the largest and wealthiest city of the European Middle Ages.
