List of Diocesan Governors of Kristiansand

This is a list of the Diocesan Governors of Kristiansand stiftamt (county) in Norway. The office of Diocesan Governor was a government agency of the Kingdom of Norway. The title was Stiftamtmann (before 1919) and in 1919 all stiftamt were abolished in favor of equal counties (Norwegian: fylker).

The stiftamt (diocesan county) of Stavanger was established in 1662 by the King. It was originally made up of three subordinate counties: Stavanger amt, Bratsberg amt, and Agdesiden amt. In 1671, Agdesiden was divided into two new counties: Lister og Mandal amt and Nedenæs amt. Stavanger stiftamt was led by a stiftamtmann and the subordinate counties were led by an amtmann. The stiftamtmann oversaw the subordinate counties and was the Kings representative there. The seat of the stiftamt and diocese originally was the city of Stavanger. In 1682, the seat of the stiftamt was moved from Stavanger to Christianssand, a much more centralized location. When this change occurred, the name of the stiftamt was changed to Christianssand stiftamt. In 1877, the spelling of the name was changed to Kristianssand stiftamt to reflect one of the Norwegian language reforms. Then again in 1889, the spelling was changed to Kristiansand stiftamt. In 1919, there was a large county reorganization in Norway and every stiftamt was abolished and the counties were renamed fylker.
