Events in the year 1905 in Norway.

Overview

1905 is the year when Norway regained its independence after the dissolution of the Union between Sweden and Norway. For the first time since 1397 Norway had a national king, after 500 years of political unions with other Scandinavia countries — the Kalmar Union until 1532, then the united kingdoms of Denmark-Norway until 1814, and finally a personal union with Sweden until 1905. The article Dissolution of the union between Norway and Sweden in 1905 covers the events surrounding the break with Sweden in depth.
