Construction of the castle was started approximately at the beginning of the 13th century. Due to annexation of the Austrian countries by Přemysl Otakar II the castle was seized by the Czech rulers and prominent south Bohemian magnates, the Vítkovecs.
The beginnings of this castle date back to the first half of the 13th century. Although the castle was the permanent property of the king until the 16th century, it was often given out to the management of noble families.
