The Battle of Stiklestad, in Nord Trøndelag, is one of the most famous battles in Norwegian history – and with good reason. King Olaf II of Norway was killed in the battle, which started as a result of an indecision around whether to have many different local kings or be gathered under one Christian kingdom. After his death, King Olaf II was made a saint as his side – which fought for Norway to be Christened under one king – won. This history can be explored and experienced through exhibitions, guided tours and the yearly play about St. Olav, which will be held at Olsok on 25-29 July this year.
