Ethiopia
   has the capital   
Addis Ababa
In 1881, the powerful emperor Emperor Menelik II and his followers moved to the foothills of the Entotto mountains near present day Addis Ababa. In November 1886, while Menelik was off in a distant corner of the empire, his wife Taytu moved the encampment from the hills down onto the current site of Addis Ababa. She reportedly left the Entotto mountain camp because of the unpleasantly cool temperatures at that high elevation and was drawn to the site of Addis. Upon his return, Menelik apparently became fond of the new location and in 1892 named the settlement, Addis Ababa, proclaiming it the new and permanent capital of the Ethiopian Empire.
