Opening heading[edit]

OLaf is a bit unfortunate version of the name, as in Norwegian he was Olav, not Olaf, and in no other language there is Olaf, I think. Arrigo 12:11, 16 July 2005 (UTC)


It should obviously be merged as it concerns the same person. Just a need to decide what to merge it under. (Barend 13:01, 18 January 2006 (UTC))
The merge should be to this article which has the std Wikipedia form for names of Kings. Wrt Olav vz. Olaf, afaik the Old Norse form would be Olaf, current Norwegian usage is Olav, and I frankly have no idea what his contemporaries would use. -- Egil 06:57, 25 January 2006 (UTC)
For reference, the name of the article that has been merged into this one was Olof Haakonson. I will remove the mergefrom template. Ardric47 23:59, 25 January 2006 (UTC)

No, this article should be renamed Oluf II of Denmark, because he was king of Denmark first and Norway second (and both only by name). No offense, but don't let any nationalistic Norwegians fool you into thinking otherwise... --dllu 12:37, 17 April 2007 (UTC)

  • Nationalistic Norwegians? Please, you Danes have an army of nationalists editing all pages that has anything to do with Norwegian-Danish relations.* -nastykermit

Oluf II of DenmarkOlaf II of Denmark — Olaf is the English translation of the Norwegian Olav and the Danish Oluf, also Olaf I of Denmark, Olaf III of Norway, Olaf II of Norway, Olaf I of Norway is under Olaf not Oluf or Olav.--Queen Elizabeth II's Little Spy (talk) 22:33, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

The way to keep out of national rivalries is to follow what English does, no matter what it is. Olaf, please. Septentrionalis PMAnderson 23:44, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

Succession dispute in 1375[edit]

It should go into more depth about succession dispute in 1375 between Olaf and his mother Margaret and Albert IV, Duke of Mecklenburg, the son of Ingeborg of Denmark.--Queen Elizabeth II's Little Spy (talk) 05:23, 6 May 2011 (UTC)
