Lucenay is a town just west of the River Rhone, and north of the city of Lyon.
The Rhone department was created on August 12, 1793, when the former departement of Rhone-et-Loire was split into two departments; Rhone and Loire.
Originally, the eastern border of Rhone was the city of Lyon itself, so that the communes immediately east of Lyon belonged to neighboring departments.
With the growth of Lyon and the spilling of the urban area into the suburban communes of Lyon, such as Villeurbanne,
the limits of the department were judged impractical as they left the suburbs of Lyon outside of Rhone.
And so, Rhone was enlarged several times to incorporate into it the suburbs of Lyon from neighboring department.

In 1852, four communes from Isere were incorporated into Rhone.
In 1967, 23 communes of Isere and six communes of Ain were incorporated into Rhone.
In 1971, one commune from Isere was incorporated into Rhone.
