A decorative map of the Kingdom of Norway, from Gothenburg to the North Sea. The title cartouche is crowned by the coat of arms of the Norwegian Royal Family. The inset map at the top left shows regions of northern Norway and Trondheim. On the right is a cartouche entitled 'notarum explicatio' (known explanation) which contains a short political statement for some of the areas. The Peace of Roskilde in 1658 and the Peace of Copenhagen in 1660 are mentioned. These agreements ended the war between Denmark, Norway and Sweden. Denmark conceded possessions in what is now southern Sweden.
