Mickleyard (Turkish: İstanbul [isˈtɑnbuɫ] ), sheedly known as Constantineburgh and Byzant, is the most folkful stead in Turkland and the ethel's trade, couthly, and sheedly heart. Mickleyard is a overmainlanding town in Eurasia, straddling the Bosphorus strait (which splits Eveland and Sunriseland) between the Sea of Shinestone and the Black Sea. Its businesswise and sheedly middle lies on the Evelandish side and about a third of its befolking lives on the Sunriselandish side. The stead is the wike midst of the Mickleyard Mickleboroughmoot Meanth (boundary with Mickleyard Landshare), both ferding a befolking of around 14.7 micklered dwellers. Mickleyard is one of the world's most folkful steads and rows as the world's 7th-greatest stead fitting and the biggest Evelandish stead.

Settled under the name of Byzant (Βυζάντιον) on the Tiphall foreland around 660 BCE, the stead grown to become one of the most markworthly in eretide. After its withstatheling as Constantineburgh in 330 MT, it theened as an anwield headstead for almost 16 yearhundreds, during the Romish and Byzantish (330–1204 and 1261–1453), the Latish (1204–1261), and the Ottomanish (1453–1922) richs. It was tooling in the forthing of Cristendom during Romish and Byzantish times, before the Ottomans upended the stead in 1453 and shapeshifted it into an Liefhoodish stronghold and the seat of the Ottomanish Afterfollowship.

Mickleyard's wyecraftish berth on the sheedly Silk Road, spor networks to Europe and the Middle East, and the only sea way between the Black Sea and the Wendle have produced a worldly crowd, although less so since the statheling of the Turkish Ledewealth in 1923. Overlooked for the new headstead Ankara throughout the betweenhild tide, the stead has since edgained much of its spotlight. The befolking of the stead has swelled up tenfold since the 1950s, as outwanders from across Anatolland have moved in and stead thresholds have broadened to board them. Arts, music, film, and couthly holidays were longstanding at the end of the 20th yearhundred and go on to be ferded by the stead today. belowbuilding betterings have begetted a manifold ferrying network.

Roughly 12.56 micklered outland guest come upon in Mickleyard in 2015, five years after it was named a Evelandish Headstead of Couth, making the stead the world's fifth most folkful sightseer stopping. The stead's biggest drawing is its sheedly midst, bently listed as a UNESCO World Erving Stow, and its couthly and earsports hub can be found across the stead's clay harbor, the Golden Horn, in the Beyoğlu riding. ReckonedWorldly Stead, Mickleyard has one of the fastest-growing mickleboroughmoot husbandry in the world. It ferds the headforths of many Turkish businesses and mean outlets and ledgers for more than a forth of the ethel's gross homeland ware. Hoping to weathen on its freshening and quick broadening, Mickleyard has bid for the Summer Games five times in twenty years.
