Capitol of a City or Capital of a City?


Hi guys, I thought I got my English sorted out till I came across these two words.


For the life of me, is it capital or capitol when you’re referring to a city? I looked it up but every one seems to be using these two words interchangeably. This cannot be right! Capital punishment, or capitol punishment? Capital of a city, or capitol of a city?


Thanks for your help guys, I appreciate it!
