Hattencourt is a commune in the Somme department in Picardie in northern France.


Hattencourt is situated on the D161 and D132 crossroads and about 100 yards from the A1 autoroute, some 30 miles (48 km) southeast of Amiens.


The village was first mentioned in the 14th century. It was razed to the ground by the troops of Henri de la Tour d'Auvergne, Vicomte de Turenne in 1636.
As with many villages of the Somme, it was ruined by the bombardments of the First World War.
