The area around Elbingerode had been a feudal hunting ground since the Middle Ages. King Henry the Fowler stayed several times at the Bodfeld, a royal hunting lodge or Königspfalz, demonstrably in 935, as did his successors of the Ottonian and Salian dynasty. Emperor Henry III died here on 5 October 1056 on an excursion with Pope Victor II. The town itself was first mentioned as Alvelingeroth in a 1206 deed, when Pope Innocent III granted it to Gandersheim Abbey.
