1814 - Norway was proclaimed an Empire when the noble class that was part of the government that was seated at Eidsvoll to sign the so called "Constitution of Norway", which the noble class was against, cause it would bring an end to the aristocratic titles they had earned...
So the noble class under leadership of one Carl Sverre Haugen rebelled against this new Constitution, and they used their power, money and influence to get the army on their side, so they stopped the Signing at Eidsvoll.
The country knew that if they were to survive they would have to be the leading country, as they knew Denmark would not be able to maintain its role as strong leader for much longer.
They put Carl Sverre Haugen on the seat of the Prime minister which turned out to be a good choice. He and his fellow noblemen made a new constitution, but this time it was called "The Constitution of The Empire of Norway." They put Carl Sverre on the throne as Emperor, and promised that all his descendants would rule as well.
Soon after this they sent ambassadors to France, declaring their demands if France still wanted them on their side. France accepted and soon the war was turned around.

Norway had held its promise to France, and France now had to hold theirs. Norway had demanded that they were to get England as well as Scotland, but France demanded that they were to keep Ireland independent.
The Napoleonic wars ended in 1817 when the Norwegian and French forces took St. Petersburg after conquering their way through all they came over...
France now created The European Empire and Norway held their grip on Sweden, Iceland, Denmark, parts of Prussia, England, Scotland, Finland and a big part of Russia, as well as several other small countries.
Today, the year 2010, almost 200 years after the Empire was founded and after that the end of the wars, Norway still enjoys a very aristocratic possession as the most powerful country in the world shared place with The First French Empire.
