Abstract: We analysed two sets of simulations probing the dissipationless merging of several star clusters into the centre of a galaxy. We found that the merging of star clusters onto a pre-existing nuclear disc structure forms a nuclear stellar disc with kinematic and photometric properties similar to those of nuclear stellar discs observed in elliptical and spiral galaxies.
