Edirne, historically known as Adrianople, founded by the Roman emperor Hadrian on the site of a previous Thracian settlement named Uskudama), is a city in the northwestern Turkish province of Edirne in the region of East Thrace, close to Turkey’s borders with Greece and Bulgaria. Edirne (Ottoman Turkish: ادرنه) served as the third capital city of the Ottoman Empire from 1369 to 1453, before Kostantiniye became the empire’s fourth and final capital between 1453 and 1922.
