Deqing has a long history dating back to the Neolithic Age. The county area was governed by Wu State at the early stage of Zhou Dynasty, by Yue State in the Chunqiu Period, and by Chu Sate after Yue State was overturned. In Qin and Han dynasties, Deqing bordered Wucheng to the north and Yuhang to the south. In the Three Kingdoms Period, Deqing was governed by the Eastern Wu. In the first year of Huangwu of Wu State (222 AD), Wukang was established a county and named initially Yong'an. In the first year of Taikang of Jin Dynasty (280 AD), it was changed to Yongkang. In the third year of Takang, it was further changed to Wukang. In the second year of Tianshou of Tang Dynasty (691 AD), 17 townships in the east border of Wukang were united and set as Wuyuan County initially, which was then changed to Linxi in the second year of Jingyun (711 AD), and further changed to Deqing County in the first year of Tianbao (742 AD). The two counties coexisted for a long period. In 1958, Wukang County was merged into Deqing County.

After the establishment of the People's Republic of China, Deqing opens a new chapter.
