The Palace was built by the ruler Constantin Brancoveanu in 1702 for his elder son. After more than 200 years, it was renovated starting with 1912 by Martha Bibescu becoming a meeting place for the members in the high level society. At the end of the Second World War, after 1945, the palace was nationalized by the Communist Party.
