Norwegians display striking amounts of mostly harmless nationalism, which likely grew from the fact that Norway during the late middle ages and early modern period always was under the thumb of one of its Scandinavian neighbor-countries. It began in 1380 when King Olaf II of Denmark also ascended the throne of Norway, and it was ratified in 1397 with the advent of the Kalmar Union which united the vast majority of Scandinavia under the Danish crown. After Sweden broke away from the Kalmar Union in 1523 and thereby ended it, Norway would remain in a personal union under Denmark as a part of the realm Denmark-Norway until 1814, where Denmark was forced to give up the entire territory of Norway in the aftermath of the Napoleonic Wars. Though the Norwegians used this opportunity to declare independence, draft a constitution[[labelnote:*]]Making it one of the world's oldest active constitutions, dating to 1814, though it does not accurately reflect the workings of the parliamentary democracy in place since 1884[[/labelnote]], and install a King of their own, Christian Frederick (who would later ascent the Danish throne as Christian VIII), part of the peace Denmark had signed had formally ceded Norway to Sweden, so in the summer of 1814 Sweden swiftly invaded Norway, resulting in conquest. Although the Swedes did acknowledge the Norwegian constitution as a part of the peace deal, they forced the recently crowned king to abdicate and renounce all claims on the Norwegian throne, forcing the country to accept yet another personal union, this time under the Swedish crown. Norway would finally achieve true independence as a constitutional monarchy in 1905, following a peaceful separation deal with Sweden, after which it [[UsefulNotes/OtherRoyalFamilies once again adopted a Danish prince, Prince Carl, and his family]], gave them Norwegian names, and made them regents.

* ''The Mountains'' are known for a somewhat quarrelsome stock, in earlier times known for constant bickering and fighting. A couple of hundred years ago the most {{ax crazy}} people often came from these areas. Telemark county still proudly presents an axe in their county weapon, while the true {{badass}}ery seems to come from Gudbrandsdalen, where local farmers singlehandedly beat an army of Scottish mercenaries in 1612, and still boast of it. And if that is not enough, the entire army was massacred afterwards.
