Community structure

The residential areas Heidehäuser and Weidmannsruh belong to the community .


The street village of Frauendorf was first mentioned in 1366. It is probably a foundation of the Naumburg bishopric. The place name means village of our lady and thus refers to the Mother of God Mary. The name developed from Vrauwendorff in 1406 to Frawindorff by Ruland in 1430 and Frawendorff in 1518 to Frauendorff in 1551.

Frauendorf was on an old trade route from Bohemia to the Baltic Sea. The bridge toll had to be paid at today's Bärhäuser . The manor Frauendorf, which was first mentioned in 1518, exercised the manorial rule over Frauendorf. In the Oberlausitz pattern register on January 2, 1551, the von Rosenhagen family is named as the owner of Frauendorf. Frauendorf was parish in Kroppen since 1540. In the 17th century the Lindenau church was moved to Frauendorf. After the Frauendorfer Church was blown over by a storm in 1660 or 1661, the village owner Bernhard von Könritz had it rebuilt in 1671.

In the Frauendorfer church chronicle, the royal Saxon minister Detlev Graf von Einsiedel is listed as a further owner. In the fall of 1871, the Einsiedel heirs sold all of the properties. The school building that is now used as a kindergarten was built between 1900 and 1902.

Administrative history

Through the Congress of Vienna in 1815, Frauendorf, which until then had belonged to the Electorate and later the Kingdom of Saxony , became part of the Kingdom of Prussia . The municipality became part of the district of Hoyerswerda in the province of Silesia . Since the district was west of the Oder-Neisse line , it became part of the Soviet occupation zone in 1945 and incorporated into the state of Saxony . In 1952 Frauendorf came to the newly founded Senftenberg district in the GDR - Cottbus district (1990–1993 in the state of Brandenburg). Since the district reform in 1993 , the community has been in the Oberspreewald-Lausitz district.

On 19 May 1974 Ms. village was shared with the neighboring Lindenau after Tettau incorporated. On May 6, 1990, both were spun off from Tettau and became independent communities. Since 1992 they have belonged to the Ortrand office.
