Lobkovice is among the oldest of Czech villages, already being mentioned by Václav Hájek from Libočany in the times of Saint Wenceslaus and Saint Albert.
In the second half of the 14th Century Lobkovice belonged to Mikuláš Cotr, a citizen of Prague, and in 1377 the estate became the property of J. Cucha of Zásada.
Lobkovice was acquired by Mikuláš Chudý of Újezd, the founder of the House of Lobkowicz, in 1409, and stayed in the family until the nineteenth century, when it was bought by the Prague attorney Dr. Jan Mechura, father-in-law of the historian František Palacký, who regularly stayed, wrote and died there (in 1876). A few years later, prince Moric of Lobkovice reacquired the family seat. In 1948, the estate was nationalized by the socialist government.
The Lobkovice Estate has been returned after the Prague Velvet Revolution, to the grandson of the last owner prior 1948, prince Ferdinand Joseph Lobkowicz.
