Long Description:
Oslo is the capital of and most populous city in Norway. Founded around 1048 by King Harald III, the city was elevated to a bishopric in 1070 and a capital under Haakon V around 1300.

There are some doubts as to the meaning of the name of Oslo. Researchers agree that the term "Os" can be understood as either a long and narrow hill or as a reference to a pre-Christian God. The second half of the name, "Lo", generally refers to a field. Hence the ancient name of Oslo may either mean "the field below the hill" or "the field of the Gods". The first signs of urban settlements date back to around the year 900 and by the year 1300 Oslo was already an important trade centre.
