This article is a list of rulers of Norway up until the present, including:

  • The Union of Sweden and Norway (1814-1905)
  • The Kingdom of Norway (1905 to present)

The early Viking kings are listed using the name common in historic sources (with the Norwegian name in italics).

Note also that before the Law of Succession was introduced in 1163, the inheritance of the throne was an affair filled with deep conflicts. In many cases, brothers would initially share it.

The Union of Sweden and Norway (1319-1343)

The Union of Denmark and Norway (1380-1396)

The Kalmar Union (1397-1814)

The Constitutional Assembly at Eidsvoll (1814)

The Union of Sweden and Norway (1814-1905)

The Kingdom of Norway (1905 to present)
