The pony capital? · 9:49pm
I just realised something.
In most fics that deal with Equestrian history (or at least most fics I came across) it is assumed, that the Castle of the Royal Pony sisters was the former capital and a place were the court resided. Then Luna went NMM, and the batle ruined once glorious city, so Celly moved her seat of power to a new place: Canterlot.
But if that's so, than what about the Traditional Royal Canterlot Voice? If Canterlot wasn't the capital back then, than why would they attribute it to royalty? And if it was, than what really was the Castle of the RPS? A summer villa? Maybe something like Versailles, while Canterlot was more like Paris? Either way, my hedcannon is ruined now...
