As a child, Eloise enjoyed learning everything she could about many subjects, though in those days the best resource was her grandma’s old stack of encyclopedias. Today, Eloise still likes to know a bit about everything, and when she’s not researching information for her Facty.com posts or flexing her history degree, she’s going through the quizzes of other authors on the site - because this is where the facts are found! Visitors to our site turn to Eloise’s fun and factual articles to learn about all kinds of things, from do-it-yourself ideas to the wider world. Those who prefer to get their facts in article format can find Eloise all across the web, as well. Not only is it great to learn from her interesting posts, but most people want to become friends with Eloise after they read her stuff - she’s just so good at explaining things!
Firstly, a normal capital city, which is an area of a country or province that is given a higher status than any other city. Next, a de facto capital, one which is head of a country’s government but not the official capital city. This can be down to tradition, emergency or conflict. Then you have purpose-built capitals; these are ones which are built because the old capital became too overcrowded, was destroyed or is too vulnerable to attack. Finally, you have split capitals, which are capital cities that have been split for either political or geographical reasons, having two or more different regions – think Berlin during the Cold War!
