Vidkun Quisling (1887-1945, shot for treason). He didn't 'give up without a fight'. He was an ardent Nazi.

AnswerMaybe you already knew this, but Norway didn't give up without a fight. Because the government of Norway wouldn't let Quisling have the power.

If you are talking about Macbeth who was the Thane of Cawdor, he was considered a traitor because he murdered his way to the throne. If you are talking about Macbeth's immediate predecessor in the office, he was a traitor because he allied himself with the Norwegians, the enemies of the Scots. "Norway himself, assisted by that most disloyal traitor, the Thane of Cawdor, began a dismal conflict."

The day after the invasion of Norway he used the radio to broadcast himself as the prime minister and ordered all resistance to stop. He was then looked upon as a traitor by the norwegian people. He remained a puppet for the rest of the war and was executed by firing squad after the war had ended

QUISLING, VIDKUN ABRAHAM (1887-1945) Head of the Nazi puppet government in Norway whose name became synonymous with traitor and collaborator. He founded the National Union party in 1933 and conferred with Hitler for the first time in December 1939. He was executed by his own countrymen on October 24, 1945. If that helps. :]]

Vidkun Quisling was a Norwegian politician. He was a friend of the Nazis and was Prime Minister of the Nazi puppet government after the Germans invaded Norway. After the war, he was shot by a firing squad as a traitor. "Quisling" has been used as a synonym for "traitor" ever since.

The biggest traitors are those who betray their own beliefs. So "who is the biggest traitor?" would depend on your point of view. Notoriously Vidkun Quisling became a byword for treachery when he sold Norway to the Nazis. As a fascist he would not have thought of himself as a traitor at all. however Judas is widely known as the biggest traitor. Maybe Brutus.

King Haakon , but he and the Norwegian government fled to England and in his place the Nazi stooge Vidkun Quisling (a traitor) was nominally in charge but Norway was really controlled by the German Nazi Josef Terboven .

The the traitors at the start of the play are a rebellion of Highlanders and Islanders, led by Macdonwald and Sweno, the king of Norway who was assissted by the Thane of Cawdor. King Duncan orders the execution of the Thane of Cawdor and hands his title to Macbeth as a reward.

User Avatar

Duncan is a bit miffed with Cawdor because he was a traitor who joined forces with the king of Norway and assisted him in his invasion of Scotland. Naturally, Duncan ordered Cawdor to be executed, musing "he was a gentleman on whom I built and absolute trust."

Because of Christianity.

Norway is a developed country because of Sweden, Denmark and Germany's occupation. All the oil that has been found in Norway is also a reason. Norway is a rich country and Norway has therefore good health care, which makes people in Norway live longer.

I think that Norway has a cold climate because it is in the arctic circle but am not sure.
