Øreting (Øretinget, Øyrating; Old Norse: Eyraþing), was a Thing in Trøndelag, Norway. It was located at Øra, where the river Nidelva mouths into the Trondheimsfjord. Øreting was a common Thing for eight provinces in Trøndelag, and developed into an assembly where the King of Norway was proclaimed.[1]
