Peter Tordenskjold
Peter Jansen Wessel Tordenskiold (October 28, 1690 – November 12, 1720), commonly referred to as Tordenskjold (lit. Thunder Shield), was a Norwegian nobleman and an eminent naval flag officer in the service of the Royal Dano-Norwegian Navy. He rose to the rank of Vice-Admiral for his services in the Great Northern War. Born in Trondheim, Peter Wessel travelled to Copenhagen in 1704, and was employed in the navy. He won a name for himself through audacity and courage, and was ennobled as Peter Tordenskjold by King Frederick IV in 1716. His greatest exploit came later that year, as he destroyed the supply fleet of Charles XII of Sweden at the Battle of Dynekilen. In 1720, he was killed in a duel. In Denmark and Norway he is among the most famous national naval heroes. He experienced an unusually rapid rise in rank and died when he was only 30 years old.

Wilhelm Frimann Koren Christie
Wilhelm Frimann Koren Christie ( 7. December 1778 - 10. October 1849 ) was a Norwegian constitutional father, known for being the constitutional assembly's writer.
Wilhelm F. K. Christie was executive officer (kansellisekretær) and head of a government office in Copenhagen. In 1809, at 30 years old, he became a judge (sorenskriver) in Hordaland. From 1815 to 1825 he was County Governor of Hordaland.
In 1814, he was a representative for Bergen at the Norwegian Constituent Assembly. He was chosen as the secretary during the whole period. Hence he did not play a very important role in the debates. Then he participated in sending a message to Great Britain from Christian Frederik in order to win support for Norway's independence. However, this message never was answered. In October he became the president of the parliament and made an important contribution to the process of discussion the union with Sweden. He stayed a representative in the parliament until 1825.
From 1828 until his death he was a customs inspector in Bergen. He was also a member of Bergen city council from 1837 to 1841, and participated in the founding of Bergen Savings Banks, where he was chairman for several years.
