Norway > Østfold County

Østfold is a county in Norway, bordering Akershus County in Norway as well as the counties of  Älvsborg, Värmland and Göteborg och Bohus in Sweden. There was a name change in the early 1900 from Smaalenene to Østfold. Østfold is located east of the Oslo fjord and prior to the time of Harald Hårfagre ca. year 900 it was under Swedish rule.  Later, when Norway was under Danish rule it was divided into many small counties.  The old name for Oslofjorden was Fold and the meaning of Øst is East which translate to the name Østfold.  This name has roots back to 1543.
