Frol is a former municipality in Nord-Trøndelag county, Norway. It is the area surrounding the town of Levanger located in the present-day municipality of Levanger.[1]

History[edit]

Levanger landsogn was established as a rural municipality in 1856 when the old Levanger formannskapsdistrikt was divided into Levanger by ("Levanger town" / population: 1,017) and Levanger landsogn ("rural Levanger" / population: 2,290). On 28 November 1874, two uninhabited parts of Skogn were transferred to Levanger landsogn by a royal resolution. On 13 November 1951, the Lillemarksbakkene area in Frol (population: 51) was transferred to Levanger. On 1 January 1962, the municipalities of Frol, Levanger, Åsen, and Skogn were merged to form a new, larger Levanger municipality. Prior to the merger Frol had a population of 3,774.[2]
