North Greenland was a Danish colony on Greenland consisting of the trading centers and missionary stations along the northwest coast of the island. Its capital was at Godhavn (modern Qeqertarsuaq).
In 1911, as the administration of the colony was removed from the Royal Greenland Trading Department and folded into the Danish Ministry of the Interior, a provincial council (Danish: landsråd) was established. It was elected indirectly from the local councils and had little say in the management of the colony.
