King Olav Remembered

King Olav remembered

King Olav V of Norway's life will be the subject of a major exhibition at the palace. Open Palace 2003 is completely dedicated to the 100th anniversary of King Olav's birth. Olav's son King Harald officially opens the exhibition on Saturday.

The English-born Olav's cradle, christening robe and school desk will be among the objects on display at the special palace celebration, alongside toys and memorabilia from his youth in Norway.

The exhibition will also commemorate King Olav's life as a sportsman, family father and soldier and will run until August 17. The 100th anniversary of the birth of King Olav V is July 2.

Stockholm, 1929. Crown Prince Olav is engaged to Princess Märtha. The picture is from the engagement day and features the princess' parents, Prince Carl and Princess Ingeborg. Princess Ingeborg was born princess of Denmark. She was also the sister of Olav's father, King Haakon. So, Crown Prince Olav and his chosen Märtha were cousins.
