Named after the Heren Regeerders of the city (the city used to be ruled rather than governed). The canal already existed as a ditch when it was widened in 1612 into the current canal, as the first of the three canals. The section from the Leidsegracht was part of the expansion carried out in 1658. The Nieuwe Herengracht was also part of this expansion (Source: Stadsatlas Amsterdam)
