Early history

Originally this area was inhabited by the Sugambrians , who were defeated by the Romans on the left bank of the Rhine . The area belonged to the Germania Libera , the unoccupied Germanic settlement area. Afterwards, the Tenkers and other peoples who also settled here formed the Franks , here the Ripuarians , who pushed across the Rhine and ruled France first as opponents of the Romans, later as their vassals and then as their heirs, and later also all of Germany. The establishment of new settlements by the Franks with the endings -ingen followed, in the municipal area only Köttingen is an example (after that the Saxons pushed forward from the north, visible from the place name -hausen). When the Frankish empire was divided under Charlemagne , this area first belonged to the empire of Ludwig the German , but later also to the empire of Lotharingen until the division . The Auelgau forms under the Lorraine Ezzone . Under the Ottonians , the area belonged to the Duchy of Lower Lorraine in the Holy Roman Empire . Under Emperor Maximilian , the Rhein-Sieg-Kreis belonged to the Niederrheinische Kreis, which extended across the Maas to Bremen . The Duchy of Berg was later established here .

middle Ages

Eitorf is first mentioned in a document from the Roman-German King Konrad III. from the year 1144, in which the Vilich monastery is confirmed to have received, among other things, the Villa Eidtorph from the Palatine inheritance in 978 .

In addition to some saddle yards and knight seats , e.g. For example, the Weyerhof , the Viehhof , Burg Welterode and Probach , there was the small Wasserburg Welterode , whose renovation is still on Asbacher Strasse today.

In Merten there was an old castle, which was probably the first Merten monastery . Its location was probably at the level of the railway cut. The new castle and the new Merten monastery are again next to each other at the entrance to Merten.

In Forst there was probably a castle that monitored the way through the imperial forest to Forstmehren (Ww.). Coins were probably also minted there. Today only the street name Zur alten Burg between Forst and the hamlet Nennsberg reminds of this tradition.

Modern times

In the 16th century Eitorf became the seat of the regional court .

The communal municipality of the same area was divided into the honors Eitorf, Halft, Alzenbach, Sterzenbach, Linkenbach, Obereip, Lindscheid, Irlenbach , Merten , Thielenbach and Rankenhohn until 1744 .
