PAZIN was mentioned for the first time in 983 in a deed by which Emperor Oton acknowledges the presentation of the fortification Castrum Pisinum to the Bishops of Porec. In the 12th century the Bishops conceded the castle to their advocatus Majnard Crnogradski (Meinhard von Schwarzenburg), who soon extended his dominion to Tinjan and Kašcerga thus setting the foundations of an estate which would undergo a fate completely different from the rest of Istria until the arrival of Napoleon. After Meinhard’s death, the estate was shortly administered by his daughter Matilda who referred to herself as the Countess of Pazin. By her marriage to the Count Engelbert of Gorizia the estate became one of the titles of the Counts of Gorizia.
At the same time, due to continuous strifes between the three sides, the power of the Counts of Gorizia was increasing. Also increasing was the power of Venice which was obtaining power over the coastal towns. The power of the Patriarchs of Aquileia, who claimed the majority of property in Istria, was meanwhile decreasing. The Counts of Gorizia were now known as Counts of Gorizia and Istria and for a while they even had their seat and a palace in Pazin.
Parts of their estate were administered on their behalf by ministeriali and militi – members of the subordinated lower nobility who, not only by warfare but also through well planned marriage bonds, obtained new property for their masters. In those times the Counts of Gorizia possessed, apart from the wider area of Pazin, Završje, Momjan, Sovinjak, Pietrapelosa, Lupoglav, Tinjan, Kršan, Kožljak, Žminj, Višnjan, Vižinada. They also had certain property or rights at Motovun, Lovrec and Tar. However, the boundaries were constantly changing and becoming the object of disputes. This situation led to the creation of the oldest Croatian international document – ISTARSKI RAZVOD (The Istrian Book of Boundaries) written in three languages: Latin, German and Croatian (in Glagolitic script).
