History

Hnevin was built on the Chateau mountain (Hnevin). Archaeological investigation proved remains of castle already there in 9th century, but the stone castle was built maybe by the Hrabisics, owner of Most, in 12th century Wenceslaus I ( _cs. Václav I) formed from Most the royal city and from the castle the seat of district administrator.

In the 13th century the castle was brought by Wenceslaus II ( _cs. Václav II) to the Branibors, in the time of disputes of Wenceslaus IV. ( [Czech language|Czech] : Václav IV.) with aristocracy, the castle came to the Meissens. Only in 1406 Wenceslaus gained the castle back. In 1459 the castle was given into the hand of George of Podebrady ( _cs. Jiří z Poděbrad) on the basis of the Cheb peace contract. The son of George of Podebrady Jindrich sold the castle in 1480 to Benes from Veitmile and in 1482 the famous meeting of Saxony princess with king Vladislaus II ( _cs. Vladislav II) took place in Most. Here it came to settlement of relation Czechs and Saxony people from many years.

From rather quiet holding of castle and its remains the Most people enjoed up to the Thirty Years War. In 1646 Swedes obtained it by quile and gave to Most people great penalties and charges. For one and a half years the emperor's army besieged the castle but it remained in the Swedes hands. They also held it after concluding the Westphalian peace. The blame for its unfortunate the Most people gave to the castle which always attracted by its significance the enemies.
