Description

Trondheim settlement was founded in 997 as a trading post.

Trondheim is a city and municipality in Trøndelag county, central Norway. Trondheim was named Kaupangen (English: market place or trading place) by Viking King Olav Tryggvason in 997 CE. Shortly thereafter it came to be called Nidaros. In the beginning it was frequently used as a military retainer (Old Norse: “hird”-man) of King Olav I. It was frequently used as the seat of the king, and was the capital of Norway until 1217.
