Prince Stanisław Herakliusz Lubomirski was a high official in the Polish royal court. He bought the property in 1674 rented it to King August II, who ordered the construction of a new royal residence, including the Bath House.

In 1795, King Stanisław August Poniatowski, the last King and Grand Duke of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, lived on the property and remodeled the Bath House into a private palace.
