Norway is a country that nearly touches the top of the Earth. Although Norway starts as a lesser partner in the Kalmar Union under Denmark, they control Iceland, a perfect stepping stone for colonizing Greenland and thus the New World. Although it will likely never manage to compete with its eastern neighbour Sweden, Norway can become an economic and trading power in its own right.

Iceland does not exist.

The final construction of the fortress in Bagahus, Bohuslän is done. A river forms a natural moat around the fortress as it commands its surroundings from a cliff 40 meters high. It serves as the main defense against Sweden with its four rectangular corner towers and the three meters thick wall which surrounds it.
The son of National Counselor Henrik Jensson, Nils Henriksson, has recently married Ingerd Ottesdatter and consolidated his possession of the Austrått estates. He is now one of Norway's largest landowners, with properties in Bergen, Vardøhus, Hålogaland, Fosen, Frosta, Stjørdal, Sunnmøre, Romsdal, Edøy, Selbu and Herjedalen. He has been suggested to the post of National Counselor.
The Norwegian nobleman and knight, Sigurd Jonsson, is a former drottsete, a man who could rule the country in the King's name, and regent of Norway. He is a direct descendant of the old Norwegian royal family and the commander of Akershus Fortress from 1440 to 1445. Sigurd Jonsson is one of the leading proponents of the anti-Hanseatic policies in Norway.
The first fortification in Vardø Municipality in Finnmark county was built in 1306 and was called Varghøya. The second fortification was built in Østervågen, erected between 1450 and 1500, a rectangular fortification with two corner bastions.
