  • Notes 
    • In the later Middle Ages the Law of Succession of 1163 simplified succession and strengthened the power of the crown. The accepted institution of the ting (an assembly of lawmen drawn from the population) also made it easier to adminster and enforce the law. As undisputed king, Haakon IV (1217-63) was able to increase the prestige of the monarchy and gain respect for Norway among the nations of Europe.
