In ancient times, Bonny was an important city. The city belonged to the 8th century in the diocese of Auxerre, but was seized by the royal estate after the death of Bishop Hainmar 769. At the beginning of the 15th century, Bonny was a stronghold where the English had dug. Joan of Arc, before driving the 7th King Charles to Reims for the coronation, was besieging the city by one of his captains, Admiral Culan, who quickly seized the city. The wars of religion did Bonny undergo severe trials for Catholics and the Protestants disputed.
