The village belonged to many feudatory families. In 1534 it passed to Levice town. In the 18th century it belonged to the Esterházy family. In 1920, by the Treaty of Trianon, it became part of the newly formed Czechsolovakia. In 1938, by the First Vienna Award, it was returned to Hungary until the end of World War II, when it became part of Czechsolovakia again. Since 1993, it is part of Slovakia.
