About The King's Choice 💬

On the 9th of April 1940, German troops invade Oslo. The King of Norway faces a choice that will change his country forever.

THE KING'S CHOICE is based on the true the story about three dramatic days in April 1940, where the King of Norway is presented with an unimaginable ultimatum from the German armed forces: surrender or die. With Nazi soldiers hunting after them, the Royal Family is forced to flee the capital. In the best interest of the family, the Crown Princess Märtha (Tuva Novotny) leaves Norway with the children to seek refuge in Sweden, whilst King Haakon (Jesper Christensen) and the Crown Prince Olav (Anders Baasmo Christiansen) flee to a small farming area just outside Elverum and meet the Germans head-on. After three days of desperately trying to evade the Germans, King Haakon makes his final decision. He refuses to capitulate, even if it may cost him, his family and many Norwegians their lives.

Inspired by the book ''Kongens Nei'' by Alf R. Jacobsen.


History has always been a huge part of my life. Books, articles, research, films. And Norway during World War II has probably received most attention by historians. But the most central part of the war has not yet been told, neither on TV nor film, the part that helps us to understand the event, and the gravity of it, the fact that war is death and danger.

THE KING'S CHOICE is the dramatic story of those who were the primary target for the attack, those who were pressured, and those whom the Nazis finally attempted to murder - the King, his family, and the Government. It is the story of King Haakon, and of the attack on Norway. But it's also a universal story about a loving father and his son.

THE KING'S CHOICE is a dream come true, a moving period drama and a portrait of a central but also mythical moment in our common history. With this film, we aspired to enthrall the audience and to broaden the scope of what a biographical fiction film can be.
