Norsk bokmål: Vidkun Qusiling (1887–1945) var en norsk offiser, diplomat og politiker. Han ble først kjent som nødhjelpsarbeider i Sovjetunionen, og var Norges forsvarsminister i to Bondepartiet-regjeringer 1931–1933. I 1933 stiftet Quisling det nasjonalromantiske fascistpartiet Nasjonal Samling (NS). Etter Tysklands invasjon av Norge i 1940 forsøkte Quisling, som den første i verden, å begå statskupp over radio, men kuppforsøket mislyktes ettersom tyskerne ikke var interessert i hans regjering. Vinteren 1942 kom han tilbake som sjef for en tyskstøttet regjering, og med tittelen ministerpresident ledet han sammen med den sivile administratoren for den tyske okkupasjonsmakten den norske statsadministrasjonen resten av krigen. Etter fredsslutningen i 1945 ble Quisling dømt til døden og henrettet for landssvik.
English: Vidkun Qusiling (1887–1945) was a Norwegian military officer and politician. He first came to international prominence when organizing humanitarian relief during the Russian famine of 1921 in Ukraine. He served as Minister of Defence in two governments 1931–1933, representing the Farmers' Party. On 9 April 1940, with the German invasion of Norway in progress, he attempted to seize power in the world's first radio-broadcast coup d'état, but failed after the Germans refused to support his government. From 1942 to 1945 he served as Minister-President, heading the Norwegian state administration jointly with the German civilian administrator Josef Terboven. His pro-Nazi puppet government, known as the Quisling regime, was dominated by ministers from Nasjonal Samling, the party he founded in 1933. Quisling held the office of Minister President of Norway while the elected social democratic cabinet of Johan Nygaardsvold was exiled in London. Quisling was put on trial during the legal purge in Norway after World War II and executed by firing squad at Akershus Fortress, Oslo, on 24 October 1945. The term "quisling" has become a synonym in many European languages, including English, for traitor.
