During the Byzantine period it was also known as Byzantium.

Byzantium is also more properly the name of a town, which was refounded by Constantine as Nova Roma or Constantinopolis. I'm not sure how or if this should be worked in.

It seems to me like it would make sense to consolidate the pages for Constantinople, Byzantium, and Istanbul, which somewhat randomly overlap. Any votes for which one we should choose as the master page? Should the other two be redirects or stubs? -- Alan Millar

Don't each name concern a different time period? There's a lot of history to be covered for this town, eventually, so I think it'll probably help organization to have it split (even if it means that a few sentences will be duplicated). --Pinkunicorn
