Archezoa was a kingdom in taxonomy, which is the system that scientists use to put living things in groups. Thomas Cavalier-Smith said taxonomy should have a kingdom called Archezoa, which would contain some living things that have organelles in their cells. Scientists stopped using Archezoa after they learned more about those living things.[1]
