Why constructor functions are overloaded in C++?

Just like a regular function a constructor function is also overloaded. The reasons behind this are:

1) For flexibility: Constructor functions are overloaded to avoid compile time errors and when they are overloaded they increase the flexibility of the code.

2) For Creating initialized and uninitialized objects: To create both initialized and uninitialized objects a constructor function has to be overloaded.

3) Constructor functions are overloaded for defining copy constructors.
