For several centuries Herby lay on the border of Lesser Poland and Silesia. Therefore, since the 13th century, one part of it belonged to the Holy Roman Empire and overlapping to the Kingdom of Prussia. The other part remained in Poland in the age of the Jagiellons and the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth. In the late 18th and in the 19th century, this part belonged to the Russian Empire.
