Some Thoughts A difference in period Comment 4 of 4 |
Several countries that existed as sovereign nations prior to our modern time have had national capitals that have had the string "and" in the cities name. Many of these nations no longer exist*  but fit the criteria of the problem. The given English name of the nation is a modern historical assigned one, as are the name of their capitals:

Yervandashat, Kingdom of Armenia       (210-176 BC)
Panduranga, Cham pa                          (1485-1832)
Alexandrov Kremlin, Tsardom of Russia  (1564-1581)
Kandahar, Durrani Empire                     (1747-1776)
Marstrand, Marstrand Free Port              (1775-1794)
Mandalay, Konbaung Dynasty                (1859-1885)
Bissandugu, Wassoulou Empire              (1878-1898)
Hollandia, Netherlands New Guinea        (1949-1962)

*A nation, such as the Tsardom of Russia which eventually has become Russia can be considered the same nation but with a different form of government. Some of these nations have existed beyond (before and|or after) the given dates following, as the dates given pertain to the date the city being the nation's capital.
