Heinrich von Hohenlohe (died 15 July 1249) was the seventh Grand Master of the Teutonic Order,
serving between 1244 and 1249. He was the son of one of the richest and most powerful feudal lords in Württemberg and
had four brothers and one sister. Von Hohenlohe was canon of the Bishopric
of Würzburg from 1218 to 1219. In 1220, he and
two of his brothers joined the Teutonic Order, donating at the same time his part of his father's inheritance to the Order.
It turned out to be one of the most powerful komturships in German lands, Mergentheim on the river Tauber. In 1221, von Hohenlohe went on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land and, upon returning, became the Komtur of Mergentheim. Upon the orders of Grand
Master Hermann von Salza in 1225, von Hohenlohe escorted Isabella II of Jerusalem, the second wife of Emperor Frederick II,
to the Kingdom of Italy. From that point, von Hohenlohe would spend much time around the Grand Master, holding important positions
in Germany, and residing in Mergentheim.
When the Order's chapter removed Gerhard von Malberg from the office of Grand
Master, von Hohenlohe was chosen as his successor. He was considered to support the emperor and, in the conflict between
Frederick II and Pope Innocent IV, von Hohenlohe represented the interests of the emperor, causing an uproar between
many of the Order's brothers led by the Master of the Livonian
Order, Dietrich von Grüningen. In 1246, von Hohenlohe rushed to Prussia to start a crusade and as a result, he captured
Christburg. He signed a favorable treaty with the Old Prussians and the Duke of Pomerania, Świętopełk II the
Great. Von Hohenlohe died in July 1249, shortly
after returning from Prussia. He was buried in the church in Mergentheim.
