Constantinople is a city in the European part of the Republic of Turkey. It was a city of the Roman empire that was conquered by Cesar Constantine who converted to crossworshiping and made the city Constantin'e city, in Greek Konstantinopolis. Then the Romans became Bizanthinians and they were allies with neighboring Turks. The Turks migrated to Byzanthinian land and paid taxes to the Byzanthinian Cesar. However the Byzanthinians broke the alliance and started massacring its Turkish subjects. A Turk named Alparslan then became a Turkish leader and pushed Byzanthinians west to Constantinople. After the Seljuks, Mongols and crusaders passed through that land a rule was formed under a Turkish Muslim named Uthman. This quickly became the Ottoman Empire. Centuries later the Ottoman ruler Muhammed took over Constantinople and the Byzanthynian rule ended.

The Greeks who lived in that are got tired of saying the long word and changed the name of the city to Stimpol meaning city in their modern dialect. After the Ottoman Empire lost power and the Republic of Turkey was formed, the city was names Istanbul rather than Stimpol, because Turkish people don't start words with s and no vowel, i always comes before the s. They don't pronounce the word statistics they say istatistik. So Stimpol became Istimpol and the Istanbul. Ottomans didn't accept the idea of renaming Contantinople and on all their coins it say Costantiniyah not Stimpol nor Istanbul.

In this European city the Ottomans had a palace for the royalty though it wasn't always the capitol city. In 1929 after the Republic was established the palace was converted into a museum. During the process a map by an Ottoman naval officer Piri Reis was found.

It was signed by Piri Reis and dated Muharram 919 after the Hijrah which is year 1513. The map was later studied by Europeans and they said it was a quite accurate map of the territories spreading from Greenland to New Foundland and south to Venezuela and the Antarctic. Piri Reis was Muhyi-iddin Piri ibn Haji Mehmed he fought numerous battles at sea. Reis was his title of admiral. He wrote the book Kitabu l Bahriyah and he drew a world map with the only portion surviving the portion showing Turtle Island. He defeated the foes at sea repeatedly and he refused to abuse the spoils of war being a true Mujahid. At the age of 80 a plot was made against him by corrupted people whom he didn't allow to wanted the spoils of war.

After defeating the Spanish and Portuguese in Yemen and the Persian gulf, he brought his ships to the Egypt for repair. There he was falsely accused of fleeing the battlefield and stealing the spoils of war and executed. Piri Reis Rahimahullah was a Turk and he visited Turtle Island and mapped it before 1513, which may indicate that there might be maps of Turtle Island before that date.

Turkic people have been known to visit Turtle Island since the beginning of human appearance in the Arctic. They still do and nowadays more frequently since technology allows quicker travel.

Besides that there's Nations like the Aleutian people's Yuit community with a US-Russian border going  straight through it keeping people apart.

It's interesting to note that the same way it's taught to Native kids in school that Columbus discover Turtle Island, it's taught to kids in the Republic of Turkey that Dr. Livingston discovered the Arab peninsula at that time when it was part of the Ottoman Empire.
