    Had this game where i had moscow and st .petersburg. I wanted to have my palace in st.petersburg to get most benifit from civil service. Well i let a barbarian take moscow for a turn and since st. peterburg where my only second city the palace switched to it.. :)

    Just a small tip! (This was valid in civ3 too i belive? but more drastic with civil service in civ4 imho..)

    Havent really tested it out but in my case it didnt raze the capitol. the barbarian invasion cleared my building que but not my previous buildings (only a libary). I might have been lucky.

    In my games i think barbarians only have razed size 1 cities.
