Events in the year 1905 in Norway.

Overview[edit]

1905 is the year when Norway and Sweden regain their independence after dissolution of the Union between Sweden and Norway. For the first time since 1397 Norway had a national king, after 500 years of political unions with other Scandinavia countries — the Kalmar Union until 1532, then Danish rule in the united kingdom of Denmark-Norway until 1814, and finally a loose personal union with Sweden until 1905. The article Dissolution of the union between Norway and Sweden in 1905 covers the events surrounding the break with Sweden in depth.
