  • 10–12 March – March riots: after the newspaper Morgenbladet publishes news of the French Revolution of 1848, some 100 youths gather to make catcalls outside the house of the newspaper's editor, Adolf Bredo Stabell, in Christiania. Counter-demonstrations, in support of the French revolution and against a local ban on trade on Sundays, involved up to 3-4,000 people and led to clashes with the police and the military.
