I would imagine the term is a relatively generic term referring to "King's City" and the one for King Philip could easily have preceded the newer one in present day Istanbul.

Hi Dave. Risto is right, the term is mainly generic that refers to the capital of the Byzantine Empire - Tsari Grad i.e.the "Imperial City" or; city of the Byzantine Emperors (i.e. Tsars). There is a subtle difference in the Macedonian language between the term "Kral" (a King) and "Tsar" (an Emperor). A king has his Kingdom (Kralstvo) and an Emperor has an Empire (Tsarstvo). That's the way I've always understood it to be anyway.
