Location of Drmoul in the Cheb district

Drmoul (German Dürrmaul ) is a municipality in the Czech Republic , it is located three kilometers southwest of Mariánské Lázně (Marienbad) in the Okres Cheb .



The area in which the village was built was inhospitable and wild. Dense, impenetrable forests and moors formed a natural boundary.

The village was first mentioned in writing in 1366. Dürrenmaul was called the locality of the "New Bohemia" Charles IV .

In 1455 there were legal disputes between Burian von Gutstein and Heinrich von Plauen. The dispute shows that the village then belonged to Tachov ( Tachau ). After that the members of the Fras von Borschengrün dynasty - lords of the castle of the same name ( Boršengrýn Castle ) - received the lands. In 1460 Kašpar was one of the first to call himself “sezení na Drmoulu”. At the beginning of the 16th century, Wilhelm von Obenberg owned the homestead. This is also evident from the register of the Bohemian King Ludwig Jagiello (1523). He was followed by Veit Ritter von Redwitz . Even then, the place belonged to the Redwitz (Rabikar) family.

There were major changes around the year 1600. Part of the property was acquired by the von Schirnding gentlemen . Johann Sebastian Rabicar is named as the first successor. There were always disputes among relatives. Veit Werner then sold his part of Dürrmaul to the Lords of Chodenplan. The property of Johann Bartl von Schirnding on Ošelín (Oschelin) came into the hands of Johann Sebastian von Redwitz.

After the Munich Agreement , the place was added to the German Empire and belonged to the Marienbad district until 1945 .
