The Storting in its present form was first constituted at Eidsvoll in 1814, although its origins can be traced back to the allting or common assemblies as early as the 9th century.
The archaic regional assemblies, the Frostating, the Gulating and the Eidsivating were amalgamated and the corpus of law was setdown under the command of King Magnus Lagabøte during the mid 13th century.
