Norway's Council of State during and after the Dissolution of the Union with Sweden

1905 - 1940

At the Norwegian decision to dissolve the union with Sweden on 7 June 1905, the office of a Norwegian prime minister in Stockholm and the system of a Norwegian council of state division there, was abolished.

In the months before 27 November that year, when the newly elected King, Haakon VII, for the first time presided over a session of the Council of State in Kristiania (Oslo), sessions were presided over by the Prime Minister.
