The capital of Norway, Oslo happened around the year 1300 during the reign of King Hakon V.. He was the first king lived in Oslo, and therefore there had built Akershus Castle. Status of the capital city of Oslo, however, during the Danish domination lost and the administrative center of the country moved to Copenhagen. During the following years Oslo suffered several devastating fires. After the most devastating in 1624, the king of Denmark and Norway, Christian IV. decided to rebuild the town near the Gulf. According to the former king, then the city got a new name Christiania. Independence from other Scandinavian countries, Norway announced in 1905 and Christiania became the capital again. About 20 years later, the city was renamed back to Oslo.
