The question about the Levant should include at least Lebanon, possibly other countries. The definition doesn't seem to be a clear cut.

Whoops. Added Lebanon. I don't think Turkey is considered to be in the Levant. Maybe some small section is. But if you know that, you would also be able to easily name a country that is entirely in the Levant.

The name was not changed until Constantinople was conquered four and a half centuries later. It was called Constantinople much longer than it has been called Istanbul.

Please, please, please: accept Istanbul and Byzantium. I tried Istanbul and started on Constantinople but then thought, 'No, QM wouldn't be so stupid as to accept one but not the other'. It's the same reason Ceylon is a type-in for Sri Lanka.

The question asks for a Christian city. Maybe Byzantium can be accepted, but I don't think Istanbul would be a good idea.

It was only the large Christian city when it was called Constantinople. I'm sorry to see you accept Istanbul now.

Here's a silly question. It's obvious from reading the comments in this section that you know at least three names for this city. If you know that, you probably have an idea about the time frame for each. Why not just use that more than adequate knowledge to type in the answer that best fits the question in the quiz? Also, I don't think the word "stupid" should ever be used on this site - especially when referring to another person.
