In early Middle Ages, this part of Poland was inhabited by the warring tribe of Yotvingians. It is not known who founded the gord of Drohiczyn: probably it was a defensive settlement of the Yotvingians, mentioned in Rus chronicles in 1061. In 1142, Grand Duke Vsevolod II of Kiev divided his realm between his family, granting Drohiczyn and Brest to his younger brother Igor. Some time in late 12th century, Drohiczyn fell under the Polish rule. On March 8, 1237, Duke Konrad I of Masovia handed Drohiczyn, together with the area between the Bug and the Narew, to the Order of Dobrzyn. Drohiczyn is in Podlaskie Province.
