Magnus Carlsen, the Norwegian chess grandmaster, is the current World Chess and World Blitz and Classical Chess Champion. He is ranking himself as the top chess player worldwide ever since he won World Chess Championship in 2013, beating Viswanathan Anand. With IQ over 190, Magnus is the youngest player to become an International Grandmaster, which he attained at the young age of 13. Also, Carlsen is the youngest chess competitor to become World Number One.
Magnus Carlsen’s parents, Sigrun Øen and Henrik Albert Carlsen, always stimulated him to use his brainpower and succeed as a chess player. Moreover, his sisters, Ingrid Carlsen, Ellen Øen Carlsen, and Signe Carlsen, are also inspirations behind his success. Lately, Carlsen has found a new source of inspiration aside from his family. The person is none other than Marcel Carlsen’s girlfriend, Elisabet Lorentzen Djønne.
Here are some more details on Carlsen’s girlfriend, Elisabet Lorentzen Djønne, who is a native of Oslo, Norway.

Magnus Carlsen Made His Relationship Public In 2020
Magnus Carlsen usually keeps his love life away from the reach of media people. However, at the very beginning of 2020, he let his fans have a glance at his sweetheart, Elisabet Lorentzen Djønne, via his Instagram page.
In January 2020, the top chess grandmaster, Marcus Carlsen, shared a series of snaps on the occasion of New Year, which included a picture with his girl, Elisabet. However, it seems like the couple began dating each other several months before 2020.

According to Chess Base, Magnus Carlsen’s girlfriend, Elisabet, accompanied him to the April 2019 Grenke Chess Classic. Before that event, Carlsen had posted a video on Instagram, captioning it being playful even when he was not playing. Reportedly, he was on vacation with Djønne when he shared the video. As proof that they are dating, Elisabet also had posted a picture of herself with Carlsen visiting a German Zoo on her private Instagram page.
In the past couple of months, Magnus Carlsen has not shared any pictures with his girlfriend, Elisabet, on his social media handles. So, it seems like both of them currently want to maintain the privacy of their romantic relationship. Or, probably, they might be planning to tie their marital knot soon and surprise their well-wishers with the news of their marriage. It looks like soon we will get to see Elisabet as Magnus Carlsen’s wife on his public profiles.
Carlsen’s Girlfriend Is An Student At the University Of Oslo
Magnus Carlsen’s girlfriend, Elisabet Lorentzen Djønne, is a student at the University of Oslo. According to various online sources, she is currently studying criminology at Oslo University. Before joining Oslo University, she attended Santa Monica College to study Business Administration in the class of 2016.
Elisabet Lorentzen Djønne’s Linkedin profile notes that she was born in a small town of Norway called Gravin. Some years later, she moved to Santa Monica, California. She started working since she was 13 at a cafe, a gas station, and a children’s park. Moreover, Djønne served in child protective services and a nursing home in India for some period. She was also a professional Zumba Instructor in Los Angeles.
However, Djønne returned to her homeland, Norway, after spending some years in the United States. As stated in Brun Og Blid, she took part in the Brun Og Blid Modelling competition in 2018. Djønne made it to the finals but could not win it.
During an interview with Hordaland magazine, Magnus Carlsen’s partner, Elisabet, said she wanted to try something new and exciting. So, she decided to take part in the modeling competition. Ever since then, the beautiful Granvin-born does not seem to have participated in any other competitions.
In 2018, Elisabet was a clerk in a clothing store in Oslo. But, it is still unknown if she continues to work there or is engaged in any other profession at the moment.
Previous Relationships of Magnus Carlsen
Reportedly, Magnus Carlsen was in an intimate relationship with a girl named Synne Christin Larsen in 2017. Carlsen’s manager Espen Agdestein confirmed the news of their relationship to Seoghør.no. However, he did not comment more on the matter as Carlsen wanted to keep it private.
Going through Carlsen’s private Facebook profile, it appeared that he began dating Larsen from Valentines’ day of 2017. However, their romance could not last for long as they broke up a year later, and Magnus was single again till he met his current love, Elisabet Djønne. As for Magnus Carlsen’s ex-girlfriend, Synne Kristin Larsen, she stays far from the limelight after separating from her former boyfriend.
Some years back, Magnus Carlsen had told that he has deliberately chosen not to have long-term relationships to focus fully on chess. It might be the reason she split up with Larsen. However, we hope he won’t repeat that again with his present lady, Elisabet. We hope to hear the news of him getting married to Elisabet Lorentzen Djønne soon.
