Baghdad is one of the oldest cities in the Middle East. People have lived in Baghdad since about 4000 BC. This area formed part of ancient Babylonia. Persians, Greeks, and then Romans controlled this area from the 500's BC to AD 600's. An Islamic dynasty called the Abbasids gained control of the region in 750 AD. A few years later a political and religious leader chose Baghdad as the site for the Arab Muslim empire. At the time the empire extended from western North Africa to western China. In the 800's Baghdad had nearly a million people and was a world center of education and Islamic culture. Baghdad gradually lost power and wealth from the 1000's to the 1200's.(EaSy&LnAs)
