Coltstantinople - The Gem of Equestria by Lionel23 Coltstantinople - The Gem of Equestria by Lionel23
Illustration done by :iconjcbarquet: =jcbarquet. I've currently commissioned him to give some rough environmental sketches of the different far off regions in my 'Expanded' universe for My Little Pony/Equestria.

The greatest trade city in all of Equestria, it is here from Coltstantinope that the Emira Cloudia and her fellow pegasi control all trade throughout the known world. Based on a mix of the Byzantine and Egyptian empires, the heavy 'cataphract' mercenaries of the Emira ensure that her control of trade is guarenteed, though there has been simmering tensions with the nation of Prance in regards to a recent sugarcube shortable...

I have my own version of this city, except it's the capital of a mighty empire based on Roman, and filled with mostly unicorns

Because historical Constantinople had them ^^ Also a little of the "region's flavor" you might not otherwise see.

Yes but you are going for Ancient Constaintinople right? They were not built until after the Ottomans took the city in 1453.

Heh, ask the artist :P JCBarquet does a TON of environmental works for me (in fact, almost all of them but 2 in my gallery have been done by him). These MLP-related drawings are of lesser detail than my previous commission works as they're for a fanfic instead of detailed scenes from the novel I'm working on ^^

Well if you need any help Sarah, do ask! I'm a creative writer, love coming up with things like world-building and I spent a lot of time on my own project so that way it does have a 'rich history' behind it ^^
