from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Seal of Margrave Heinrich IV of Baden-Hachberg from 1331

Heinrich IV. Of Baden-Hachberg († 1369 ) was 1330-1369 Margrave of Hachberg and Lord of Kenzingen .


Heinrich was the son of Heinrich III. and Agnes von Hohenberg († 1310) born.

In 1344 he acquired the Andlau monastery property and rights in Sexau . "In 1352, Margrave Heinrich IV bought the lower rule of Üsenberg with Kenzingen and the Kirnburg from his brother-in-law Friedrich von Üsenberg , although Friedrich only had his dominion from Austria." The House of Habsburg also rose after the death of Friedrich von Üsenberg Right to Kenzingen. In 1358 Rudolf of Austria obtained a judgment that awarded him the dominions of Kenzingen and Kirnbach. Heinrich continued to call himself Herr zu Kenzingen, whereupon a further judgment was issued against him in 1365, and in 1366 he and the city of Kenzingen were even sentenced to imperial ban.

Heinrich married Anna von Üsenberg and presumably had four children with her:
