Why exactly did Norway invade Denmark and annex the newly created provinces of Erik Raudes-Land and Fridtjof Nansen-Land? I know that Norway was forced from being in personal union with Denmark under personal union with Sweden after the Napolenic Wars and Denmark keeping norwegian posessions like Greenland, Iceland and the Faroese Islands. King Haakon VII of Norway was a dane, so why was he willing to risk a war with Denmark? Also weren't Svalbard, Jan Mayen, Bouvet Island and Peter I Island integrated into Norway during his reign? And the claims on Antarctica? So was it part of a more aggressive foreign policy of Norway?
