Abstract : If the representation of the emigrant persecution was obvious to many Protestants expelled from their towns and villages of Provence, Languedoc, Guyenne, Saintonge ... the study of Huguenots traders settled in Scandinavia offers another image of the Refuge. The French Huguenots that settled in to Stockholm and Copenhague were not always refugees nor genuinely French. A number of them came from countries where their families could have been established for a long time, even for some generations, and where they were not persecuted, like Switzerland or the United Provinces. If they left it was to create or expand a commercial activity like all the other European traders.
