Today in History: The Royal Family

Today is a day of both mourning and celebration. January 17th marks the 18th anniversary of the passing of King Olav V and his son's, Harald V, ascension to the throne of Norway. This is especially noteworthy because Harald became the first Norwegian monarch to be born in Norway since the birth of Olav IV in 1370.
