The first great city to which the Crusaders came in 1089 was Constantinople, the capital of the Byzantine Empire. It was the key to the foundation, survival and ultimate eclipse of the crusading kingdom. The riches and sophistication of the city nevertheless made a lasting impression on the crusaders, and through them on western European culture.
