Village – subject of property conflicts of the Middle Age landlords

Period of the first centuries of the Hungarian state existence and incursion of the Tartars in year 1241 to our neighborhood is wrapped in the veil of mystery. By the end of the 13th century, the settlement became property of rebellious aristocrat Matúš Čák Trenčiansky and later of Yeoman Peter, son of the knight Bees.
After long lasting conflicts, the village was devastated by hoarders Forgatschs (Forgáčovci). The village ran wild after yeomen conflicts (1425), and Tlmače are marked as “pledium Kistolmach”, i.e., wasteland.
When the Levice castle was seized by the Levicki´s, they also tried to seize the Tlmače property, which resulted in long lasting property conflict. Based on the friendly agreement, Jan Čech of Levice ceded Tlmače to the Hronský Beňadik monastery. In 1565, the village was transferred to administration of the Esztergom chapter as the Benedictines moved away from Hronský Beňadik and the monastery was changed to an anti-Turkish fortress.
