Encyclopedia

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This category contains cities that once served as the capital of their respective countries, which countries have since ceased to exist. Any such city may be included, even if the capital were transferred before the country ceased to exist.

Not included in this category are:

  • Former capitals of countries that still exist (see Category:Former national capitals), unless they were also capitals of former countries.
  • Ruined cities, e.g. Memphis, Egypt
  • Former national capitals that are now the capital of another country. For example, Kiev would not be included on this list by virtue of it serving as an early capital of Kievan Rus' (predecessor to Belarus, Russia, and Ukraine) because it is now the capital of Ukraine. Likewise, Belgrade, Berlin and Moscow were the capitals of former communist countries (Yugoslavia, East Germany and the Soviet Union), but they are now the capitals of Serbia, Germany and Russia respectively.
