7 июня 1905 норвежский стортинг вынес решение об отделении Норвегии от Швеции

This decision was confirmed by a plebiscite in August. This is how the Swedish-Norwegian Union, which had existed for almost 90 years was dissolved. And all went quietly, no fuss. The elected (!) King Haakon VII and Queen Maud entered Christiania (now Oslo) on November 25 and went about their daily work. By the way, Fridtjof Nansen was one of the candidates for the throne. But he refused. He probably decided that being a king was not as interesting as being a polar explorer. The only reminder that Sweden and Norway used to be one country is that one of the Nobel Prizes – the Peace Prize – is awarded by the Nobel Committee of the Norwegian Parliament.
