Byzantine Empire

Hi everyone! For the final blog post, I created a timeline of the Byzantine Empire and highlighted some of the many historical events that occurred. The Byzantine Empire was the continuation of the Eastern half of the Roman Empire which managed to last for another 1000 years after the Western half collapsed. It was only in 1453 that the Byzantine Empire came to an end after suffering a defeat from the Ottomans.
