The department was created with the French revolution, the March 4th 1790 pursuant to the law of the December 22nd 1789, starting from part of the province of the Languedoc. The department was made up starting from the dioceses of Albi and of Castrate. Under the terms of the law of the 28 pluviôse year V, the departments of Herault and the Tarn exchanged the canton of Angles (which belonged to the diocese of Saint-Pons) and the canton of Saint-Gervais (who belonged to the diocese of Castrate).
