The founder and first publisher of Norske Intelligenz-Seddeler was printer Samuel Conrad Schwach, who edited the newspaper until his death in 1781. In the beginning, the publication was a weekly magazine. Its content was mainly advertisements and entertaining articles. The newspaper was called Christiania Intelligenssedler from 1807 to 1893. Beginning in 1814 it started covering political events by publishing articles from various contributors. Starting in 1830, it became a daily publication.
The publication was bought by the orphanage Christiania Opfostringshus in 1815. This institution was given special privileges by the government in 1816, related to printing of official notices. Announcements regarding the city Christiania were not paid for, but other notices came to be an important source of income over the years. Among the editors of the newspaper were teacher Anton Schjøth from 1834 to 1857, educator and writer Siegwart Petersen from 1861 to 1878, and literary historian Hartvig Lassen from 1880 to 83. The privileges on official notices ended in 1882, when the official Norsk Kundgjørelsestidende took over these tasks, and Norske Intelligenz-Seddeler started focusing more on its role as a newspaper. From 1890 to 1918 it was published and edited by jurist Hjalmar Løken. During his period it was an independent political newspaper, supporting the Liberal Party, and playing a significant role in the political debate. In 1920 the newspaper became part of Verdens Gang.
