Later the village passed through sale and inheritance to the Baron of Baustetten and the Baron of Mansberg. The Von Baustettens' part was acquired by Württemberg in 1448, and then the Von Mansbergs' part of the village in 1465. After the municipal reforms in the 19th century Bempfligen became part of Urach Township, and then part of the Nürtingen District after the township system was abolished.
