The Regalia of Norway

The Regalia

The regalia is a collective term for the Insignia of the Realm, which includes three crowns, two sceptres, two orbs, the imperial sword and the anointment horn. When Carl III Johan (Carl XIVJohan) came to the throne in 1818, it was clear he would be crowned in Nidaros cathedral in Trondheim as prescribed by the Constitution. Norway had no regalia, so the King himself ordered and paid for the essential items. The coronation of King Haakon VII and Queen Maud in 1906 was the last to be held before the Constitution´s requirement concerning crowning was abolished. However, both the King´s Crown and the Queen´s Crown were placed on the high altar during the Service of Consecration and Blessing for King Harald and Queen Sonja in 1991.The Regalia are kept in Nidaros Cathedral and are on display there at certain times.

This coronet is used in the monogram of Crown Prince Haakon and his wife and will most likely be used in the monograms of his children

- just like this coronet was in the monograms of Crown Prince Olav and Crown Prince Harald and their wives and children in their Crown Prince period of life.

Hello anna,
I wonder if the phrase "Has never been used" in this instance really means "Has never been worn" - This article is from www.kongehuset.no

Thanks for sharing this information regarding the monograms of crown princes.

As the Crown Prince's Coronet has never been worn... there's really not a Crown Princess Coronet. Ingrid Alexandra will probably use the image of the existing Crown Prince's Coronet, when she becomes Crown Princess.

Isn't it interesting that hardly any of the regalia was made in Norway itself? And that the one piece made in the country hasn't been worn?

I think that orbs are presented to the monarch as a symbol of Royal power being (supposedly) derived from God. I know that in the UK it is held by the monarch during the actual crowning.
