The Abel Family Tree

  • Arild Stubhaug


Beginning in 1588, King Christian IV ruled for sixty years over the kingdom of Denmark and its provinces and dependencies. The king bestowed 27 visits on his dependency, Norway, and spread the view that Norway was a land rich in natural resources and labour power, a land of opportunity for new enterprises in commerce, timber, fish and minerals. The king founded the Kongsberg Silverworks in 1624 and he issued a royal command on how the city of Oslo should be moved and set up according to a quadrature gridwork plan located in the shadow of Akershus Fortress, and how it, the capital of the province, was to be called Christiania.
