It was initially located in Vuode Province, but on 6 June 1982/III, it was re-established on the site otherwise known as the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee campus, which had been annexed to the Kingdom earlier that year. At the time, it was christened Montevûdio, but was later renamed Abbavilla. The capital has retained that name ever since.
There remains some debate over whether Abbavilla is the capital or the capitol. While it was clearly selected as the capital, modern Talossans sometimes point out that the nation is a city-state itself, and accordingly is already its own capital. This would make Abbavilla the capitol building, instead. There is no consensus on the matter.
