Heinrich was born as the son of Heinrich II and Anna von Üsenberg († 1286).

After his father's abdication, Heinrich initially took over the rule together with his brother Rudolf . In 1297 they jointly confirmed the donation from Heitersheim to the Order of St. John by their father.

In 1306 the brothers divided up their land, with Heinrich receiving the stronghold and possessions in the lower Breisgau, while Rudolf received the Sausenburg and the possessions in the upper Breisgau. Heinrich continued the Baden-Hachberg line, while Rudolf established the Hachberg-Sausenberg branch line.
