Henry II, Count of Sponheim-Starkenburg
He married Loretta of Salm in 1315. He may have ruled the county of Sponheim alongside his father, John II, Count of Sponheim-Starkenburg, for a brief while; however, he pre-deceased his father by five months. John II was succeeded by his grandson (the son of Henry II), John III who was, however, only nine years old at his grandfathers death. For the following seven years, 1324–1331, his mother, Loretta of Sponheim, acted as his regent.
