The place of the Dobele medieval castle was inhabited by Semigallians before and during Livonian crusade. On the hillfort was located administrative centre of the Dobele County and quite big settlement around it. He is first mentioned in written sources in 1254. During the Livonian campaign saw heavy fighting around the settlement. He endured six sieges of the Livonian order, but the crusaders failed to conquer it. In the army of the crusaders 1279 from kuldīga together with the allied Curonians attacked Zemgale of Dobele castle but was unable to defeat him. Winter 1280 / 81 Livonian order attacked Dobele castle under command of master Konrad von Feuchtwangen, but the attack failed. In winter 1288 / 89 a large army of crusaders, including the allies of the Estonians and Latgalians, under the command of master Kuno von Hazzingenstein attacked Dobele. However, they were only able to Rob and burn the city Dobele, but the castle withstood the siege. In 1289 after famine and Crusader scorched earth policy to the whole of the Semigallians burned their Dobele castle and migrated to Lithuania. Thus Dobele castle was one of the last semigallian fortresses in the territory of Latvia.

The Livonian order built a stone castle at the abandoned settlement of Semigallians in 1335-1347 years. Small craftsmen and merchant settlements only developed around the castle. Until 1562 the castle was the seat of the vehicle commander. In the 16th and 17th centuries several regional Landtag meetings were held in the castle. In 1621 and 1625 the castle was occupied by Swedish troops led by king Gustav II Adolf. From 1643 to 1649 the castle was the residence of the widow of the Duke of Kurland, Elizabeth Magdalena, who lived there with his adopted son, the future Duke Jacob. During the Polish-Swedish war the castle was captured by Swedes in 1658. After the war it was partially restored Duke Jacob Kettler.
