After ten years of civil war where did Constantine establish the capital of the Eastern Empire?
Constantine never had a thing to do with the "eastern" empire or the "western" empire. He moved the capital of the Roman empire to the eastern city of Constantinople. The connotation of eastern and western was not made by the ancients, but is a term invented by historians to clarify the part of the empire they would be writing about. The ancients considered the empire one, and they all considered themselves Roman.
How did Beijing become the capital of china?
The capital of China was moved to Peking, later renamed Beijing, when Kublai Khan finished conquering China. He moved his capital (of the entire Mongol [or Khanbalik] Empire as well as China) there, and it is the capital of China still.

How did moving the capital from rome to constantine weaken the western part of the empire?
The establishment of Constantinople did not weaken the western part of the empire. Constantinople was made the capital of the eastern part of the empire. Milan was made the capital of the western part. Rome became the nominal capital of the whole empire. Making Milan the capital of the west was designed to strengthen the western part. Milan was nearer the front of the frontiers along the Alps and the river Rhine which were under constant attacks. It was also where the cavalry-only forces, established by Emperor Gallienus as a rapid deployment force to reach the areas of the frontier under attack quickly, were based.
What was important about constantinople in Roman history?
The Roman Emperor Constantine made it his imperial in capital in 330 (previously there were two capitals, Nicomedia, not far from constantinople, and Milan, in Italy). Even after the Western part of the Roman Empire had disappeared, it continued to be the capital of the surviving part of the Roman Empire (the eastern part) and was known as the capital of the Romans. It was taken over by the Ottoman Turks in 1453 and became the capital of the Ottoman Empire. It was then called Istanbul or, in some official documents, Kostantiniyye. After the fall of the Ottoman Empire, the government of the Turkish Republic made Istanbul the sole name of the city (in 1930)
