Due to a lack of money, they sold Lüben to Heinrich IX in 1446 . von Glogau and pledged Haynau. Due to the Liegnitz feudal dispute , which was sparked after the death of Ludwig II in 1436, because the Bohemian sovereign, King Sigismund demanded the reversion of Liegnitz, they could not enforce the inheritance claim.
