Transcript of The Byzantine Empire

The Byzantine Empire
Yay best
empire ever !
Woo!
introduction side...
...... thing
the byzantine empire existed from 330 A.D to 1453 A.D when it fell to the ottomans
G is for the Geography
our big empire actually stretched to 3 different continents. Asia, Europe, and Africa.
it surrounded the Mediterranean sea and because the empire was big it covered some rivers. one big one is the Nile in Egypt so it could be a purrrrrrrfect spot to allow trade
R is for religion
well.. our empire didn't have a for sure one religion during there existence so I'm gonna name all of them
from 330 (the beginning of the empire) to 380 A.D, the Byzantines have been Roman pagan 'til Constantine 1 was the ruler. then from 380 to 1054 they tolerated the the different religions. from then to their down fall in 1453. they were Christian
pic of the Hagia Sophia church

byzantine empire.*

A is for achievements
p is for political system
e is for economics
S is for social structures
yup that's it and remember stuff about this (you kinda need to
alrite bye :3
yup. rankings in the empire. pretty cool i guess
the golden age for this empire was from 641 to 1025
the government for the Byzantines was an Absolutist autocracy. all the power in this empire was to the emperor. there was many emperors of this place but a few stood out like the first emperor was Constantine I.
then Justinian. he created the empire with a strong military) and led his empire to the golden age (but wasn't in rule during that time). Constantine XI was the last and final emperor .
Constantine I
kinda like the caste system, the
Byzantines had this little ranking thing called hierarchical structure. it had three classes: higher class, middle class, and lower class. the higher class was only the emperor and his family. the middle class was just normal workers with normal jobs and then theres the lower class which consist of slaves and people that had no job.

The Byzantine economy was among the most robust economies in the Mediterranean for many centuries. Constantinople was a prime hub in a trading network that at various times extended across nearly all of Eurasia and North Africa. Some scholars argue that, up until the arrival of the Arabs in the 7th century, the Empire had the most powerful economy in the world. The Arab conquests, however, would represent a substantial reversal of fortunes contributing to a period of decline and stagnation. Constantine V's reforms (c. 765) marked the beginning of a revival that continued until 1204. From the 10th century until the end of the 12th, the Byzantine Empire projected an image of luxury, and the travelers were impressed by the wealth accumulated in the capital. All this changed with the arrival of the Fourth Crusade, which was an economic catastrophe. The Palaiologoi tried to revive the economy, but the late Byzantine state would not gain full control of either the foreign or domestic economic forces.
