History

 

The settlement was first mentioned in a 'tenth list' in 1332. Since 1423, it has a church. Mindszent was named after the church built in honour of All Saints. This name was first mentioned as 'Myndzenth' in a charter from 1561. Later, in documents dating from the 17th-18th centuries, the village was mentioned as 'Apor-Mindszent' (up until 1818). After the Ottoman occupation, Mindszent became property of the Chamber. In 1803, the widow of Marquis Károly Pallavicini, Leopoldina Zichy, bought the Mindszent-Algyő estate. She then donated it to her son, Eduárd Pallavicini. The settlement was raised to the rank of city on October 1, 1993.
