    For centuries, the lower castle was the residential castle of the lords and imperial counts of Untergreiz and, from 1809, of the older princes of Reuss.
    In 1564, the rule of Reuss was divided into the areas of Untergreiz, Obergreiz and Gera due to inheritance. Heinrich the Elder was given Untergreiz and built his seat of power next to today's St. Mary's Church, which later became known as the Lower Palace.
    From 1768 to 1802, after the Untergreizer line had died out, the count's residence became the seat of three state colleges of the reunited older line (government, chamber, consistory).
    After a devastating fire in the city in April 1802 and the associated severe destruction of the Lower Castle, the reigning Prince Reuss Elder Line, Heinrich XIII, had the Lower Castle rebuilt in the classicist style by 1809.
    After completion, Henry XIII. the residence of the Principality of Reuss older line from the Upper Castle to the newly built Lower Castle. The lower castle was the residence of the principality from the time of the second reigning prince of Reuss, Heinrich XIII, of the older line until the end of the monarchy in 1918.
