Transcript XXV111 HISTORICAL SKETCH OF CONSTANTINOPLE. the sciences, the improvements in social life, the incidents and events which happen in the world, are subjects to which the attention of the Turk is now turned, and the fictions of his "story-tellers" are superseded by the realities of life. Every day the distinctions which marked this great capital, as an Asiatic city on an European soil, are beginning to disappear, and it is probable that, in a few years, such an amalgamation of its inhabitants with those of other European cities will take place, that the strong characteristics which lately distinguished it will only be found in our pictorial representations. EMPERORS AND SULTANS OF CONSTANTINOPLE, FROM THE DEDICATION OF THE CITY TO THE PRESENT DAY. Those individuals only of each dynasty are noticed who reigned at Constantinople. GREEK DYNASTY. Flavius Claudius Julian us, nephew of Con- Family of Constantine. FlaviusValerius AureliusConstantinus I. was born in Britain, a.d. 272; crowned at Rome, 306; transferred the seat of empire to Constantinople, and dedicated the city to Christ, 330; died 337, after a reign of thirty years and nine months. The place of his birth is doubtful; by some said to be Dacia; by others, Britain, of which his father was governor, where he married Helena, a British lady. Among other evidence is the panegyric of Eumenes, "Oh, Britain ! blessed of all lands, who first beheld Csesar Constan- tinus," &c. Constantine was esteemed an eloquent preacher, and one of his sermons has come down to us. He left behind him three sons, who succeeded him. Flavius Julius Constantinus II. Junior, succeeded his father: he was born at Aries, 312; crowned, 337 ; and was killed in 340 in battle, and his body cast into the river Alsa. Flavius Julius Constantius was born in Pannonia, 318; crowned, 326; and died of apoplexy, 361. Flavius Julius Constans I. was born 330; crowned, 333; and died, 350. The manner of his death is disputed : he either was killed in battle, or put an end to his own life, to escape his enemies. stantine the Great, was born at Constantinople in 332 ; crowned, 361 ; and died, 363. He was killed in battle in Persia, by an arrow from a Persian horseman. He endeavoured to extinguish Christianity, and obtained the name of the Apostate. In him the family of Constantine terminated. Family of Jovian. Flavius Jovianus was born inPannoniain324; crowned, 363; and died, 364. He was suffocated by the fumes of charcoal. He revived Christianity, but lived only seven months and twenty-one days after he came to the throne. Family of Valentinianus. FlaviusValerius Valentinianus I. was born in Pannonia in 321 ; crowned, 364; and died, 375, of apoplexy. Flavius Gratianus was born in Belgium in 359 ; crowned, 367 ; and killed in battle, 385. The empire was now divided into Eastern and Western; Valentinianus II. was nominated to the latter, and Valens to the former. Flavius Valens was born in Pannonia in 328; crowned, 376 ; and burnt to death in a cottage in Thrace by the Goths, 378. Family of Theodosius. Fla\ius Theodosius I. was born at Seville in Spain in 335; crowned, 379; and died, 395,
