In 1582, the Hungarian captain Ferenc Geszty, in charge with the Deva Castle's garrison, erected a house at the foot of the citadel hill.[1] That house became the residence of Sigismund Báthory, general Giorgio Basta, Stephen Bocskay, Gabriel Báthory and Gabriel Bethlen.[2]

Gabriel Bethlen dispose in 1621 the radical transformation of the initial house, the result being Magna Curia palace.
