Back to Europe

The Kingdom of Norway, situated in northwestern Europe, was established in the 9th century, the era of indomitable Norse Vikings who ranged far and wide, visiting the coasts of northwestern Europe, the Mediterranean, Greenland and North America. United briefly with Sweden in the 13th century, then passed through the Union of Kalmar in 1397, to the rule of Denmark which was maintained until 1814. Again fell under the rule of Sweden 1814-1905. It regained independence as a kingdom in 1905. For a more detailed country profile, see CIA World Factbook on Norway.
