Category:Former national capitals
This is a list of cities that once served as the capital of their respective countries, until the countries' governments relocated the capitals elsewhere.
Not included in this category are:
- Former capitals of countries that no longer exist (see Category:Capitals of former nations), unless they were also capitals of yet-existing 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.
Please place only city articles to this category. City categories should not be subcategories to this category.
