  Byzantine Empire - Phantis
The Byzantine Empire is the term conventionally used to describe the Greek-speaking Roman Empire during the Middle Ages, centred at its capital in Constantinople.
The Eastern Empire was largely spared the difficulties of the west in the 3rd and 4th centuries, in part because urban culture was better established there and the initial invasions were attracted to the wealth of Rome.
The empire was also by now noticeably different in religion from the former imperial lands in western Europe, although the southern Byzantine provinces differed significantly from the north in culture and practiced Monophysite Christianity rather than Chalcedonian Orthodox.

 Empire (style) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
As it was intended to idealize Napoleon's leadership and magnify the increasing stature of the French state, the Empire style was created by French designers who drew heavily for their inspiration on symbols and ornamental designs borrowed from the glorious empires of ancient Greece and Rome.
As such, French Empire became a state-sponsored design movement that soon spread to and affected every field of aesthetics, most notably in architecture in such grandiose Neoclassical structures as the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel, Vendome Column, and La Madeleine, which were built in Paris to emulate the famous edifices of Imperial Rome.
In the United Kingdom, Germany, and the United States, the Empire style was adapted to local conditions and gradually acquired further expression as the Egyptian Revival, Greek Revival, Biedermeier style, Regency style, and late-Federal style.
