Current administrative location: Inowrocław, Gmina Inowrocław, Powiat Inowrocław, Województwo Kujawsko-Pomorskie.
Administrative location in 1895 (Słownik Geograficzny Krolestwa Polskiego): Montwy, Kreis Inowroclaw, Regierungsbezirk Bromberg, Provinz Posen, Kaiserlich Deutsches Reich.
Also known as Montwy. A village in powiat Inowrocław. According to documents in 1153, Duke Bolesław, brother of Mieszko, gave the monastery in Łekno “Manthev”. In 1193, the charter was given to the Strzelno monastery and was listed in its number of possessions: “the Mantwa bridge and inn” (K.W., n. 18, 32, 101). In 1234, Kazimierz, the Duke of Kujawy, buried his deceased wife at St. Troy church in Strzelno, this alleviated the duties on the church and inn, “in Monthwa super Nothes”. In 1246, documents list that the bridge was named Mantowa (Ulanow. Dok. Kujaw., str. 123, 125, i 127). It seems that the bulk of the area was Matwy, then part of this area became Inowrocław. See Montwy.
