    RESEARCH NOTES:
    Prince of Mecklenburg [Ref: ES I #82]

    called "the Lion" [Ref: Leo van de Pas SGM 9/17/1998-180158]

    Together with his brother Johann he ruled Mecklenburg during their father's absence. [Ref: Leo van de Pas SGM 9/17/1998-180158]

    By defeating the robber-knights and destroying their strongholds he restored peace in Mecklenburg. [Ref: Leo van de Pas SGM 9/17/1998-180158]

    At Erfurt he was knighted by Emoperor Rudolf. [Ref: Leo van de Pas SGM 9/17/1998-180158]

    1292: through his first wife he obtained the city and lands of Stargard and called himself Lord of Mecklenburg and Stargard. [Ref: Leo van de Pas SGM 9/17/1998-180158]

    had to fight the cities of Wismar and Rostock as they tried to free themselves from their rulers, the Dukes of Mecklenburg. Wismar soon relented but it took much longer with Rostock. However, Heinrich had to acknowledge King Eric of Denmark as overlord for Rostock; but when this king died in 1319, he annexed Rostock and forced the new King of Denmark to secede Rostock formally. In 1322 he took the additional title of Lord of Rostock. [Ref: Leo van de Pas SGM 9/17/1998-180158]

    1310: his claims on Brandenburg were not supported by Emperor Ludwig IV nor could he obtain the principality of Rugen even by force. [Ref: Leo van de Pas SGM 9/17/1998-180158]

    His warlike actions impoverished Mecklenburg and when he levied the monasteries they refused to pay, so Heinrich retaliated by stopping their incomes altogether. The Bishop of Ratzeburg punished him by placing the church interdict on him; when this was lifted in 1324 Heinrich founded the monastery at Ribnitz. [Ref: Leo van de Pas SGM 9/17/1998-180158]

    one daughter by first wife, six children by second, none by third wife [Ref: Leo van de Pas SGM 9/17/1998-180158]
