Mouzilo (Greek: Μουζήλο), officially the Kingdom of Mouzilo (Greek: Ρηγάτο του Μουζήλου) is a constituent Kingdom of Rhōmanía. Founded as an independent state in May 2012, Mouzilo's status as an independent state was fully transferred to Rhōmanía, with Mouzilo forming part of the Empire as a self-governing Kingdom.

The current state of Mouzilo and what bore its name prior to 29 May 2020 are separate entities; the present state is reduced in territory and constitutes only part of what was known as the Theme of Mouzilo, an administrative division of the State of Mouzilo. The State reformed into the Basileia of the Romans, whereas the Theme was upgraded to a Kingdom, inheriting the symbols of the former State.

Legal status

Mouzilo is a Kingdom, forming a self-administered part of the Basileia of the Romans. Though a state entity between 2012 and 2020, Mouzilo fully transfered its status as such to Rhomania, with the latter replacing the former for all intents and purposes. Therefore the current state of Rhomania is a direct continuation of the former State of Mouzilo.

A distinction exists between the State of Mouzilo, a former nation, and the Theme of Mouzilo, an administrative subdivision of the said State. What is currently known as the Kingdom of Mouzilo and its territories, was formerly called the Theme of Mouzilo, itself only forming part of the larger State of Mouzilo, which also included other territories. With the replacement of the State of Mouzilo by the Basileia of the Romans, the Theme of Mouzilo was honorarily reorganised into a Kingdom, and all of the State's former national symbols, such as its tricolour flag and coat of arms, were awarded to the newly formed Kingdom.

Simply put, the tranformation can be explained as follows:

The current Kingdom of Mouzilo is, however, considered a continuation of the 2012 Kingdom of Mouzilo, as reflected on the regnal numbering of Basileus Emmanuel in his dual capacity as Basileus of the Romans (Emmanuel I) and King of Mouzilo (Emmanuel II).
