The name "Glowe" comes from the Slavic Gluowa or Glova and means something like "head", named after the 9 metre high Königshörn, a small headland. The small parish grew up on and around the Königshörn.The area was part of the Principality of Rügen until 1326 and thereafter the Duchy of Pomerania. Under the Treaty of Westphalia in 1648, Rügen, and thus the territory of Glowe, became part of Swedish Pomerania. In 1815, Glowe went, as part of New Western Pomerania, to the Prussian province of Pomerania. Since 1818, Glowe has been part of the county of Rügen.
