The first construction on the castle started around the late 1290s, by King Haakon V, replacing Tønsberg as one of the two most important Norwegian castles of the period (the other being Båhus). It was constructed in response to the Norwegian nobleman, Earl Alv Erlingsson of Sarpsborg’s earlier attack on Oslo.

Akershus slott, en kongelig residens og gravsted!
På 1600-tallet var slottet overdådig innredet som kongelige residens for Kong Christian IV. I kjelleren ligger krypten med det norske kongehuset sitt gravsted. Akershus slott ble påbegynt av Håkon V Magnusson (1299-1319) omkring år 1300, som en befestet middelalderborg. Senere under Christian IV (1588-1648) ble middelalderborgen ombygget til et renessanseslott omgitt av en bastionfestning (Akershus festning). Flere bygningsmessige endringer kom i den påfølgende perioden før slottet forfalt i løpet av 1700 og 1800-tallet. En omfattende restaurering ble gjort første halvdel av 1900-tallet. I dag er Akershus slott Regjeringens fremste representasjonslokale.
