Debrc was part of several Serbian states (the Serbian empire, the State of Nikola Altomanović, the Moravian Serbia, and the Serbian Despotate), before been conquered by the Ottoman Empire. In 1718-1739, it was part of the Habsburg Kingdom of Serbia, but was again conquered by the Ottomans in 1739. Since 1804, Debrc is part of modern Serbian state.
