History[edit]

In the 9th century, the territory of Kútniky became part of the Kingdom of Hungary. In historical records, Hegybeneéte a component village of the municipality was mentioned in 1380.

Until the end of World War I, it was part of Hungary and fell within the Dunaszerdahely district of Pozsony County. After the Austro-Hungarian army disintegrated in November 1918, Czechoslovakian troops occupied the area. After the Treaty of Trianon of 1920, the village became officially part of Czechoslovakia. In November 1938, the First Vienna Award granted the area to Hungary and it was held by Hungary until 1945. Hegybeneéte and Töböréte villages were unified in 1940 under the name of Hegyéte, to which Blažov (Balázsfa) and Podafa villages were attached in 1960, but the latter became independent in 1990 again. After Soviet occupation in 1945, Czechoslovakian administration returned and the village became officially part of Czechoslovakia in 1947.
