Kaisheim was the local High Reeve's office and belonged to the Imperial Abbey, Kaisheim Abbey. The Abbey was founded in 1133 by Graf Heinrich III von Lechsgemünd and his wife Liutgard. The abbey was probably already given Imperial Abbey status before 1370, however it was not until 1656 that the Imperial immediacy or sovereignty from the immediate lord was recognized
Since the German Mediatisation of 1803, Kaisheim has belonged to Bavaria and from the Bavarian reform edict of 1818 the present day community arose. Kaisheim was given market rights and is sometimes referred to as Markt Kaisheim.
The Latin title given to the town was "Caesarea" from "Kaisersheim"
