In historical records the village was first mentioned in 1250. Until the end of World War I, it was part of Hungary and fell within the Dunaszerdahely district of Pozsony County. After the Austro-Hungarian army disintegrated in November 1918, Czechoslovakian troops occupied the area. Under the Treaty of Trianon of 1920, it became officially part of Czechoslovakia and fell within Bratislava County until 1927. In November 1938, the First Vienna Award granted the area to Hungary and it was held by Hungary until 1945. In 1940, Lögérpatony (Horná Potôň) and Benkepatony (Benkova Potôň) were unified, since it has been called in Hungarian as Felsőpatony, while in Slovakian Horná Potôň. After Soviet occupation in 1945, Czechoslovakian administration returned and the village became officially part of Czechoslovakia by the Paris Peace Treaties in 1947. In 1960, Čečinska Potôň (Csécsénypatony) was also attached to the village.
