This chapter examines how immigrants integrated into the maritime mercantile community of Trondheim, Norway, in the Seventeenth and Eighteenth centuries. It focuses on the economic, social, and political strategies adopted by the immigrants in order to assimilate into the community and construct local, regional, and international trade networks. It offers a case study of four immigrant families who originated from Flensburg and settled in Trondheim: the Angells, Horneman, Hoë, and Lorck families. It provides a short history of Trondheim, before exploring the economic, social, and political assimilation strategies used by the four families in depth. It concludes that migrant merchants integrated into the relatively small native trading community by finding economic niches, and strengthened their integration into elite society through marriage and the construction of strong trade networks.
