Hadrianopolis (Thracia) — A settlement in Thrace
Hadrianopolis was an important settlement in Thrace, refounded as Hadrianopolis by emperor Hadrian who also made it the capital of the Roman province of Thrace.

Licinius was defeated there by Constantine I in 323, and Emperor Valens was killed by the Goths in 378 during the Battle of Adrianople (378). In 1369, the city was conquered by the Ottoman sultan Murad I. He renamed it "Edirne".

The city remained the Ottoman capital for 84 years until 1453, when Mehmed II moved the capital to Constantinople (present-day Istanbul). Edirne is famed for its many mosques, domes, minarets, and palaces from the Ottoman period.

Modern location: Edirne, Turkey
