    Jerusalem, capital of Israel.

    Rulers:

    Canaan (at the time the city was called Salem)

    Israel

    Judah

    Babylon

    Persia

    Greece (via Syria)

    Rome

    Constantinople

    Syria (not the Greek seat of power at the time)

    Arabia

    Turkey

    Crusaders (aka the UN of the Middle Ages)

    Egypt (by a Kurdish sultan)

    Khwarezmid Empire

    Ottoman Empire

    United Kingdom

    Jordan

    Many of these countries ruled Jerusalem multiple times over its history. Jerusalem is once again back under the control of Israel, though Israel is no longer governed by a monarchy.
