History

The first written mention of Hřiměždice is from 1270. Until 1270, the village was owned by the Břevnov Monastery, then King Ottokar II of Bohemia merged it with the Kamýk estate. In the 15th and 16th centuries, Hřiměždice belonged to the Hluboká estate. Jan Vojkovský of Milhostice bought Hřiměždice in 1569 and annexed it to the Zduchovice estate. During the 17th century, the Wratislaw of Mitrovice family and the Strahov Monastery were among the owners of the estate. At the beginning of the 18th century, knight Adam of Mateřov bought Hřimeždice from the monastery and made it the centre of his small estate.[2]
