Norwegian Government-in-exile

Categories: Politics & Administration

Countries: Norway

The Norwegian government and parliament refused to accept a German ultimatum to form a new government under Nazi control. King Haakon VII and his son Crown Prince Olav were forced to leave Norway and were evacuated to Scotland by sea, and then on to London where a government in exile was established. Throughout the war, 1940-1945, the headquarters were at Kingston House North, Princes Gate.
