Norwegian? Thought they were a Swedish band. So fails as being famous Norwegian.

I didn't realise it was THAT Anni-Frid!

Both the Norwegian thing and all the princess stuff confused me…..

Except she was born in Norway…making her a Norwegian who moved to Sweden to work, before then marrying a German minor royal and moving to Switzerland where she now lives with a British Viscount (her husband died but she kept her title).

She is the Princess Reuss and Countess of Plauen, commonly referred to as Her Serene Highness.

Wikipedia is your friend (and mine).

I'm sad so few know who Fridtjof Nansen is. He lead the first successful expedition to the North Pole. He was a scientist and Nobel Peace Price winner.

If my wife was doing this pole, she would've picked Frida but I am the one answering the questions. As to Fridjtof, I knew of him, but he didn't make my top 5, neither did Frida who is well-known but not in my top 5.

If we would've had Big John Carew a 6'4 striker for the Norwegian football team who also played for Aston Villa, then he would've certainly gotten my vote.
