Danish royalty, the son of Frederik VIII of Denmark, King of Norway from 1905. Haakon was appointed king by the parliament after the dissolution of the Swedish-Norwegian union. With his constitutional attitude and sense of propriety, he strengthened the monarchy's position in Norway. In 1928, during a worker’s crisis, his conduct assured him the support of labor. In disagreement with the retiring prime minister and the president of the Norwegian parliament, he was supportive of the leader of "Arbeiderpariet" (the Labor Party) to create a new government
Haakon was considered a national symbol by his straight attitude when the Germans occupied Norway in 1940. Exiled along with his parliament, he continued his rule from Great Britain. After five years in exile, he returned to Norway in 1945. His ties to Britain were reinforced by his marriage to his cousin, the British Princess Maud on 7/22/1896.
The autumn of 1955, Haakon celebrated 50 years as monarch. Not long after, he had an accident which resulted in a broken leg. After being sick for a long period, he died on 9/21/1957, Oslo, Norway.
