They made the fortress Rzikowicz their seat and from then on called themselves Rzikowsky von Dobrzicz ( Říkovský z Dobrčic ). The family held the property for over 300 years until it died out in 1786. In 1790, Count Wenzel Ugarte bought the estate, and in 1796 his sons Aloys, Klemens and Joseph inherited it. Subsequently, the owners of the property changed frequently. From the year 1608, the place name is as Ržykowicz and 1718 as Ržykowitz handed. The village had gone to Vlkoš.

In 1854 Peter von Chlumecký and his brothers Victor, Jan and Hugo bought the property. From 1872 the village was referred to as Rzikowitz / Řikovice and since 1881 only as Řikovice . The community has been part of the Prerau district since 1880 . The road to Vlkoš was built in 1882. The Chlumecký family sold their property in 1918 and emigrated to Austria. The castle was converted into a school in the second half of the 20th century. In 1976 the village was attached to Horní Moštěnice . The primary school in Řikovice was closed in 1978.
