Radio-loud Narrow-line Seyfert 1 (NLS1) galaxies are unique probes of the formation of powerful radio jets at extreme (near-Eddington) accretion rates and low black hole masses, in a regime very different from classical blazars and, therefore, not probed before. Further, strong thermal and non-thermal components simultaneously present in their spectral energy distributions (SEDs), shed new light on the jet-disk connection at much shorter timescales, given their low SMBH masses. While NLS1 galaxies have been studied thoroughly at optical and X-ray energies for decades, the populations of radio-loud, and $\gamma$-ray emitting NLS1 galaxies have only emerged more recently. This contribution provides a short review of the multi-wavelength properties of this intriguing class of Active Galactic Nuclei (AGN), including X-ray variability and emission mechanisms, gamma-ray discoveries, SEDs, star formation activity, host galaxy morphologies, different methods of black hole mass estimation, (unexpected) FeII properties, and high-velocity large-scale outflows possibly driven by the radio jet and with a surprisingly pronounced ionization stratification.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
