The Gothic palace and church of Otyń were a property of the Society of Jesus from 1661 until its suppression in 1776, Duke Peter von Biron of Courland and Semigallia bought it in 1787 and called the place Deutsch-Wartenberg to distinguish it from his estates in Syców (German: Groß-Wartenberg). After his death in 1800 his daughter Dorothea inherited Otyń, her children sold one part to the former Prussian minister Karl Rudolf Friedenthal in 1879, while the other part went to the Radziwiłł family and later to the House of Czartoryski.
