Humenné is a town located in the Southeast of the Slovakian region of Prešovský.
People have lived in and around what is now Humenné for thousands of years, but the settlement of the town didn't happen until the early fourteenth century. The history of the town was influenced by a lineage called the Drugeth, who used Humenné as the seat of their dominion within the Hungarian Empire until the end of their line in 1684. In the nineteenth century, the Andrássy family made their influence on the town, mainly by constructing new buildings in the town.
