Coat of arms of Hohenberg in the armorial of Scheibler of 1450

The Counts of Hohenberg were an ancient swabian dynasty in the southwest of the present-day Germany, in the State of Baden-W├╝rttemberg. In the 13th century the dynasty of Hohenberg was one of the most prominent lineages in Southwestern Germany. In 1381 however, Rudolf III. Count of Hohenberg sold - highly indebted and with no male successor - the corpus of the County to the House of Habsburg. Some 100 years later the last sideline died out. The County of Hohenberg persisted de jure until 1806.
