King Olav was voted "The Norwegian of the Century" by NRK's viewers. He received 41% of the votes, and ca. 400,000 votes were cast in total. Runner ups were Einar Gerhardsen (A Prime Minister) and Erik Bye (an entertainer). -

Also, maybe a time to stop by TRF's short bio of King Olav?

Dditorial director Kaja Mejlbo of 'Budstikka' met CP Haakon at Skaugum on January 16, where he spoke of his beloved grandfather, King Olav, who died 25 years ago. The interview can be read in Budstikka.

This is the interview: Budstikka - – Han var definisjonen på en konge
Google Translation
Haakon was in the mountains. It was his first ski trip without adults, on a rented cottage in Hemsedal with a couple of buddies. Then came the phone call. "It was my father who called. Grandfather had a heart attack." Haakon packed fast. A police escort drove him down. On the radio came the latest news about the King of Norway. The driver was quick to turn off. "We arrived at King's Cabin late at night. All the others were there, my aunts and cousins. But not my father. I greeted everyone. The atmosphere was a little weird and I did not dare to ask. One of my cousins told ​​me that he was dead already when I arrived." The time 22.20 is the official time. King Harald had gone already. He had to keep the minister, then speak to the people. Haakon saw his father on television late that night. "He impressed me. Holding a speech on TV that evening. I remember it surprised me that he had a duty to do so quickly."

"He was a warm and welcoming man. But we who knew him in the parlor know he had more tools in the toolbox also obviously. He had the temperament, King Olav. If things were not in order, he was clearly annoyed. If we were to be photographed, for example, and we kids did not show up as we should at once, we got that look. And my mother told me how he reacted when I as a little boy sped up toward the altar during a Christmas service.
When the family was gathered, it was different, more relaxed. But still there were rules. Table manners were an absolute requirement."

Above all, King Olav remains standing as a role model for the heir to the throne.
"For me he has always been the definition of a king. He was a distinct boss in family, a regent for the country and a people's man."
