Who ruled Eastern Empire and chose to move its capital to Byzantium?

Constantine the Great moved the imperial capital of the eastern part of the Roman empire from Nicomedia (in northwestern Turkey) to the nearby Byzantium which he redeveloped and renamed Constantinople (which means city of Constantine) in 330. The imperial capital of the western part of the Roman Empire remained Milan, in Italy. Emperor Diocletian had created a system of co-emperorship and designated Nicomedia as the imperial capital in the east, and Milan as the imperial capital in the west in 286. Rome became the nominal capital of the whole empire. Constantine was not the ruler of the eastern part of the Roman Empire. He started as a military commander of the Roman armies in Britannia. He was proclaimed co-emperor for the western part of the Roman Empire by his troops in York. He then became sole emperor by winning two civil wars, one against a usurper in the west and one against the co-emperor for the eastern part of the Roman Empire. Therefore, when he created Constantinople as the imperial capital of the eastern part of the Roman Empire, Constantine the Great was the emperor of the whole of the Roman Empire.

How did the moving capital from Rome to Constantinople weaken the western part of the empire?

The capital of the Roman Empire was not moved from Rome to Constantinople. Rome had already ceased to be the imperial capital under Constantine's predecessor, Diocletian. He designated Nicodemia (in north-western Turkey) as the imperial capital of the eastern part of the Roman Empire and Milan (in northern Italy) as the imperial capital of the western part. Constantinople was just 60 miles to the west of Nicodemia. Constantine's designation of Constantinople as his imperial capital did not weaken the western part of the empire. Diocletian had created a co-emperorship with his fellow general Maximian. Diocletian was in charge of the eastern part of the empire and resided in Nicomedia. Maximian was in charge of the western part and resided in Milan. After winning tow civil wars, Constantine became sole emperor. Therefore, one imperial capital was sufficient and no parts of the empire were weakened.
