The Black Sea

The Byzantine empire, with its capital in Constantinople, was a quintessentially Black Sea power, yet profiting from the empire's own geography proved difficult. Relations with northern barbarians were a constant concern. In time the Byzantines ceded control of the sea to the commercial Mediterranean empires of Venice and Genoa. The Italians helped to revive the trading relations that had flourished under the ancient Greeks.
