Mediolanum)) first appeared in the charter of the last Carolingian King, Louis the Child, 904 AD, thus existing "officially" for more than 1100 years.In 1363 Mettmann was one of eight administrative burghs in the Earldom of Berg and Jülich.

The ability to toll and tax allowed the burgh to develop in commerce and trade. Mettmann is in North Rhine-Westphalia.
