The Moryń peninsula had been the site of a West Slavic fortress, which the Wittelsbach elector Otto V of Brandenburg had rebuilt in 1365. The adjacent settlement was mentioned as a town in 1306. With the Neumark region, it was given in pawn to the Teutonic Knights between 1402 and 1454. Mohrin was devastated during a Hussite campaign in 1433.
