Niemodlin [?e'm?dl?in] (German: Falkenberg O.S.) is a town in Opole County, Opole Voivodeship, Poland, with 6,315 inhabitants (2019).

History

It was first mentioned as Nemodlin in a 1224 deed and received town privileges in 1283. The German place name Falkenberg is first recorded in the year 1290. Originally a part of the Duchy of Opole, after the death of Duke Bolko I, Niemodlin became the capital of a duchy in his own right from 1313 to 1382. When the Opole line of the Piast dynasty became extinct in 1532, various noble families like the House of Zierotin and the Prazma (German Praschmas) held the estate (also known as Falkenberg) until the 1940s,[2] leaving a Renaissance castle, built about 1600.

After the First Silesian War in 1742, Falkenberg became part of Prussia and was the capital of the Falkenberg district in the Province of Silesia. In 1871, with the Prussian-led Unification of Germany, the town became part of the German Empire. After World War II in 1945, it was placed under Polish administration.
