(blood-relationship 0,000012 %)
* ? x Agnes of Sayn (before 1225) + ? (before 1237)
Heinrich was the last of his line, leaving five daughters but no son. A long and costly fight erupted over his possessions, financially ruining his daughter Loretta and her husband Count Heinrich IV of Ober-Salm. In 1284 they had to sell Blieskastel to the Bishop of Metz. The couple could only hold on to Püttlingen, a modest property, and even that under the Bishop's overlordship.
