Where to find information about the Norwegian Royals.

There are many internet sources for information about Norwegian Royals.

They have their own webpage, Kongehuset (In Norwegian), which also has an English version. The latter is a bit more underdeveloped than the Norwegian, but it should get you started.

You also have the major newspapers and television stations:
VG, Dagbladet Aftenposten, NRK and TV2 (All these are in Norwegian text)

There are also some Norwegian newspapers who have a section on the Royals in English, among them: Aftenposten in English.

You also have The Norway Post which features news about Norway in English. Yes, the royals as well.

Anyone else have any current links to share, to either newspapers, webpages or messageboards about the Norwegian Royals?

Exerpts from book review

There is being published a new biographical encyclopaedia on the Norwegian Kings and Queens. That is why I post this here, as it contains information on the Norwegian royal family through history.

It gives a description of King and Queens all the way from the medievals until today. And it is especially unique in the sense that they also bring in Queens from the union period in Norwegian history.

I so want this book for Christmas And as we know behind each and every successful man there is a powerful woman

I've translated exerpts from this article myself, so it isn't perfect. But you should get an impression on how the book is. If someone want the entire translation, send me a PM, and I'll e-mail it to you

This is how the royal house’s women rules
A unique book on the Royal House of Norway gives an insight into how about 50 women have kept the Kings in line. Mette-Marit and Sonja are praised.
[…]

We meet several special female characters, amongst them Crown Princess Märtha who died before she became Queen. Still, she played an important historical role and had great influence on her spouse Olav and their son Harald.
[…]

Sonja and Mette-Marit
The book describes Queen Sonja as a “national strategist with a strong engagement in Norwegian nature and cultural heritage”[1] She is the first Queen without royal blood, and is praised for how she has handled this.


”But with secure sense of shape and non-stop work effort she contributed substantially on the modernisation of the Norwegian monarch” it says in the chapter on her.
Mette-Marit is also high lighted, as the women who challenged the Royal couple’s dignity. But how she and Crown Prince Haakon dared to count on their love strengthened the royal family because they, by accepting her, dared to show courage.
[…]

Literature and royal art
The biographies are written by recognised historians and other experts. In addition to describing each individual’s life span, they also give an evaluation of the individual King and Queen’s historical importance, and which role they played in their present.

The book should have a plus for the detailed biographical factual information, and reference to sources and literature for each individual, to those who want to learn more.

And references to (the most) know portraits, busts, sculptures and statues.
The book also contains family trees, which amongst others show that the present Norwegian royal house can trace their ancestors all the way back to the old royal families.

[1] My translation of quote from book.

The original is found here; http://pub.tv2.no/nettavisen/kultur/...icle493458.ece

The book refered to in the article below

After some e-mailing I found out which book it is they are reviewing in the article. It seems that the women bit is 1/3 of the book. But still quite interesting!

It is obviously published in Norwegian, but I guess that Swedes and Danes and others who are familiar with the Scandinavian languages can enjoy this book too.

ISBN: 8257316539 Price: 448,00 NOK Published by Kunnskapsforlaget.

Translation of description given by the publishers;

The Norwegian monarchy has a history which streches over 1100 years. During this time Norway has had more than 60 monarchs. All (with one exeption) were men, that is Kings; some we have had to ourselves, some have we shared with our neighbouring countries. For the first time in 60 years there is now published a complete overview of Norwegian Kings and Queens through the times, from Harald Finehair to Harald 5. The book is divided into an overview of the royal powers development from the Viking age until the present. After that we get to know the persons behind the titles – first the monarchs, divided into historical eras and chronological order, then the kings wives, in alphabetical order. The book is richly illustrated with portraits, family trees, monograms etc.

The Royal Norwegian Embassies all supply excellent information on the Norwegian Royal Family, The Royal Norwegian Embassy in Dublin has lots of great leaflets on the King and on many of the Royal homes and Ceremonies. The Embassy in London aslo has great info both in print and online.

I'm not sure where to post this, as this is only my second post in the forum. But I was wondering how to pronounce "Haakon" and "Mette-Marit". Thanks.

This is a good search motor for news in Norwegian about the Norwegian royals, it searches in all the national and local papers

Viddi Norge - finn den lokale søkemotoren for DITT hjemsted

It works best for Märtha and Mette-Marit as it is not so common names as forinstance Haakon, but it works for him aswell, its better to search for "Kong Harald" than just Harald which is a quite common name.

I dont know weather this is the correct place to ask this question , but I thought Princess Martha louise got married before her brother Prince Haakon , but on the royal website it states that she got married in 2002 , and Prince haakon married in 2001 .

Yes the information is right. Haakon married first (in 2001).
Märtha-Louise married in May 2002.

Well, not exactly about the Norwegian royals, but related to them you can look/hear beautiful a-capella version of the Norwegian national anthem, which is one of the prettiest in the world IMHO. And also on youtuber, the royal anthem of Norway, which can be found . Reminds me of something...hmz...wondering what it is
