Why did Constantinop l e get the works?
now its called ISIS
And correction: Constantinop l e was the CAPITAL of the Byzantine Empire.
My social studies teacher played this in class because we were learning about this. Everyone would sing along! ��
And before Constantinop l e there was Byzantium

Learned about this in English today, actually :) The Moors changed it to Istanbul, because it was named after the Catholic Roman emperor Constantine.
This is actually a cover from a era all old song. Not insulting it at all it's just good to here a revived song.

This is an amazing song for many reasons, one of them being the fact that we take Turkish at our school.
