The area has been inhabited since ancient times. Before the Hungarians conquered the area, Slavic and Avar tribes lived here.
Cigánd was first mentioned in documents in 1289. Its residents were fishers, hunters and serfs. In 1347 the village was divided into two parts because of a debate over ownership, the two parts were called Small Cigánd and Greater Cigánd. The two parts were reunited in 1922.
Cigánd was granted town status on July 1, 2004.
