delhi shahjahanabad
Delhi/ Shahjahanabad
  • Population growth impacted Shahjahanabad immensely. Being newly rebuilt from the ruins of the old city Delhi, everybody in Shahjahanabad was an immigrant to the city and the majority of the immigrants were merchants, artisans, saints, and holy man which created a city that was a center for trade, commerce, and religion. And the large and growing population created a powerful army that had hundreds of thousands of people on the front line.

Delhi/ Shahjahanabad (continued)
  • The city of Shahjahanabad held many roles especially being a religious center in India, being a center of administrative and military power, and having a great working economy with high population of merchants and artisans. The main role of the ruler was to make administrative and military decisions. And during times of war, the city was unstable because during this time the city was completely deserted
isfahan iran
  • As population began to grow it wasn’t at all that bad for Isfahan. The population growth helped the textile factory because the vast population caused it to create more job openings. And with the population being high outside of the factory more people will continue to by textiles earning the company lots of money. Also the high population allowed for more merchants, craftsman, and trade which were all things that Shah Abbas fostered.

  • Religious Role- Shah Abbas practiced religious tolerance to learn to accept other religions. He also forced Jews to convert to the Islamic religion.
  • Political Role- Isfahan and Europe shared a strong hatred for the Ottoman Empire.
  • Economic Importance- Isfahan had a major textile industry. Plus they made porcelain, carpets, and metalwork.
  • Role of the Ruler- Abbas forced all the Jews to convert and allowed English and Dutch trade into their city. Also in his reign he made Isfahan the capital of his country.
  • Sustainability- Shah Abbas maintained absolute command and imported loyal soldiers. Also he kept up-to-date weapons and recruited soldiers from all over the country.
constantinople istanbul
  • Population growth affected the Constantinople greatly when it comes to trade. As the city grew, it’s economy grew adjacently. Other cities that were political hubs failed in the end because of lack of income. Greater population = More money
  • Constantinople was the capital of Christian religion at the start of the Byzantine Empire but once it became Istanbul, it became largely Muslim.

Constantinople/Istanbul (continued)
  • The political role of Istanbul was overcome by it’s trade. The central area of Istanbul (it’s political center) was left in the dust by trade centers in the city.
  • The economic importance of Istanbul was great in the fact that it was a huge centre for trade and boasted a huge market for foreigners and locals to trade in.

Constantinople/Istanbul (continued)
  • The ruler of Istanbul didn’t have much effect on making the city important because the trade did all the work.
  • The sustainability of the city was probably difficult. With a large population, and people moving constantly, maintenance probably took a lot of work and a lot of money.

London, England
  • England before the twentieth century was unsanitary and had a high death rate, which resulted in London’s population to skyrocket. Going from200,000 in 1600 to 900,000 in 1800 shows how London was siphoning ½ of England’s population into itself. London’s population impacted England substantially. London’s high population levels gave birth to industrialization in the 18th century. London’s population also promoted creation of national market, including transportation and communication facilities. Also, London’s high death and immigration rates kept England’s rate of population relatively low.

  • Economic Importance- London promoted growth of national market, like transportation and communication facilities.
  • Role of Ruler- Queen Elizabeth ruled over London, as well as all of England.
  • Sustainability- London’s population continued to grow and remain balanced.
