Thrace

Background

Thrace was a civilization that existed in northern <Greece and while sharing a similar culture with that of the rest of Greece was different enough in many regards to classify them as unique.

It was later conquered by Philip II of neighboring Kingdom of Macedon and eventually the Roman Empire during its conquest of Greece.

Thrace became even more famous during the Roman Empire when the capital city of Byzantium was established there. Byzantium was later renamed Constantinople after the collapse of the Roman Empire and the rise of the Byzantine Empire. Constantinople would later be conquered by the Ottoman Turks who made it their capital city and renamed it Istanbul.

Origins

The civilization of Thrace traces its origins back to the original Thracian people that inhabited the region. These groups may existed in northern Greece for as long or longer than the Mycenaean Greeks themselves.
