Heinrich, Lord of Attinghausen was one of the earliest lords of the Castle of Attinghausen. He was likely born in the first half of the 1100s.
His place in the family genealogy is uncertain, as he is known only because he appears in the ancient church necrologies in Uri.
According to The History of the Barons of Attinghausen and Schweinsberg by Theodor Von Liebenau, and supported by the church books, we know the names of three very early lords of Attinghausen: Albrecht, Heinrich and Lamprecht. According to a 2011 article by Helmi Gasser, Lamprecht can be identified with the founding family of the castle, and thus by default Heinrich and Albrecht must have come inbetween.
Heinrich was honored on April 28 in the Yearbook of the Monastery of the Order of St. Lazarus and on April 27 in the yearbook of the St. Andreas Church in Attinghausen. That he was memorialized in both yearbooks indicates he was very wealthy.
There is no way to determine if Heinrich is Albrecht’s father, or vice versa. The younger of the two was likely born around the 1130s or 1140s and the older likely born between 1100-1120.
