He was the elder son of Count Friedrich VI from his marriage with Kunigunde (1265–1310), a daughter of Rudolf I of Baden.
In 1298, he married Euphemia (d. 1333), a daughter of Count Albrecht II of Hohenberg-Rotenburg. This marriage had been mediated by Emperor Rudolf I himself, and brought an end to many years of rivalry between the Swabian Counts of Zollern and Hohenberg.
Friedrich VII died after 6 October 1309. After his death, the County of Zollern was inherited by his younger brother Friedrich VIII.
Friedrich and Euphemia had two sons:
- Fritzli I (d. 1313), Lord of Zollern
- Albrecht (d. 1320), married Guta of Gutenstein
