After the occupation of the left bank of the Rhine by French revolutionary troops (1794), the place belonged to the canton Homburg in the Donnersberg department from 1798 to 1814 and was administered by Mairie Lambsborn . Due to the agreements made at the Congress of Vienna (1815), the region first became part of Austria and, in 1816, part of the Kingdom of Bavaria . Under the Bavarian administration, Martinshöhe and the canton of Homburg came to the Landkommissariat Homburg in 1818 , from which the Homburg District Office emerged in 1862 . In 1920 it moved from the Homburg district office to the Zweibrücken district office .
At the end of 2014, 68.6 percent of the population were Catholic and 19.6 percent Protestant. The rest belonged to another religion or were non-denominational. The Catholics belong to the Diocese of Speyer , the Evangelicals to the Protestant Church of the Palatinate .
