The oldest indication of Hričov dates back to 1208, when the castle was mentioned as a possession of the Nitra diocese. In 1254, the King Belo IV. gave away the castle and its estates to Master Toluš. The Balaš family tried to obtain the castle in 1270 – 1280. They managed it for a short time, but later the castle was captured by their archenemy Matthew Csák of Trenčín. The Balaš family regained the castle after Matthew's death in 1321. In the mid-14th century, the castle was again in royal hands. In the 1440s, the fortress was seized by theHussites.
The castle was occupied by knights Podmanickí and Thurzo family as well
