Holders[edit]

Many other wiki orders pages have the highest grades present holders listed. Now I don't know how many people have say the Grand Cross with Collar of St. Olav to know if this is practical here Alci12 17:24, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

The list is now done. I suspect there might be someone who has been left out and some information is uncertain. Such as the year Hassan of Jordan was appointed. So I have tagged it with the incomplete list template. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Inge (talkcontribs) 23:06, 19 December 2006 (UTC).
I have now updated the list with all known holders of Grand Cross, being either Heads of States or Royals. However, quite a few non-Norwegians received the order during state visits before 1985, ministers, senior officers and courtiers. These are not listed, and I suppose a complete list is difficult to find. Takvaal (talk) 14:49, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Courtesy[edit]

Could someone please explain what this means? Is it getting at that foreign heads of state are merely honourary members of the Order? --Daniel C. Boyer 16:36, 7 March 2007 (UTC)

Website[edit]

i fixed the external link to the new one on the norge monarchy's specific page. Fairly confident that it is the right one but please check if you read Norwegian. - maxrspct ping me 18:46, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Royal Norwegian Order of St. OlavOrder of St. Olav — Simplify it a bit. Nobody says "Royal Norwegian" in daily speech. The category over at Category:Order of St. Olav has omitted "Royal Norwegian". Most other wikipedias have omitted "Royal Norwegian".--Geschichte (talk) 17:45, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

  • Support, since there's no Royal Swedish Order of St. Olav, Royal Danish Order of St. Olav, etc. GoodDay (talk) 18:47, 26 February 2011 (UTC)
  • Support, in a search of Google the common name appears to be Order of St. Olav. EricSerge (talk) 19:32, 26 February 2011 (UTC)
  • Support. Seems uncontroversial to me. Andrewa (talk) 14:12, 27 February 2011 (UTC)
