Wikipedia: Trabzon (714 words)
Trabzon, formerly known as Trebizond, is a city on the Black Sea coast of north-eastern Turkey.
Alexius I, a grandson of Byzantine emperor Andronicus I Comnenus and Georgian King David the Builder, made Trebizond the seat of an empire, and because of this connection the polity was sometimes referred to as the Comnenan Empire.
Trebizond controlled an area across the southern Black Sea coast, and parts of the Crimean peninsula and Kerch briefly in the thirteenth century.
