Meroe was the second capital of the Kingdom of Kush. It was moved from Napata around 591 BC. However, it is thought that Meroe may have always been the capital and Napata was merely a base of operation.

Is Meroe in Egypt a city?
First of all, Meroë is in Sudan, not Egypt, and was historically part of Nubia or the Kingdom of Kush, not Ancient Egypt (save when Ancient Egypt was conquered by Kush). Second, Meroë was a city in ancient times and often the capital of Kush, but today it is simply an archaeological site. There is no major settlement near Meroë.
