New Constantinople is a human colony world, governed by the Unified Earth Government.

Vice Admiral Danforth Whitcomb distinguished himself in this engagement,[2] as did the Spartan-IIIs from Alpha Company.[3][4]

Trivia[edit]

The planet is named after the capital city of the former Byzantine Empire, Constantinople.
