Adolf V (?) Graf von Berg
Per Med Lands: "ADOLF ([after 1128/30]-killed in battle Damascus [24/28] Jul 1148). The Chronica regia Pantaleonis records that, during the course of Louis VII King of France’s crusade in 1148, “Adolfus fortissimus adolescens, filius Adolfi comitis de Berge” was killed in battle at Damascus as the army was travelling southwards through Syria[132]. The term “adolescens” suggests that Adolf could have been 15/20 years old. If that is correct, he might have been born from either marriage of his father. His name suggests that he was his father’s oldest son. The date of his death can be estimated more precisely from the early 14th century Kurdish historian Abu al-Feda who dates the start of the siege of Damascus to “le 6 de rebia premier” [25 Jul 1148][133]."

Friedrich von Berg Archbishop of Köln
Per Wikipedia:
     "Friedrich II of Berg (1120 – 15 December 1158), was Archbishop of Cologne from 1156 until his death in 1158.
Life
     "He was a son of Adolf IV, Count of Berg, and his second wife Irmgard von Wasserburg. He was the brother of Archbishop Bruno III of Berg, a nephew of Archbishop Bruno II von Berg and an uncle of Archbishop and Saint Engelbert II of Berg.
     "In 1150 he was elected Bishop von Utrecht but that election was not accepted by Conrad III of Germany and he was never confirmed in the position.
     "In May 1156 in another disputed election, this time in Cologne, the college elected Gerhard von Bonn while the young Domherren chose Frederick von Berg as Archbishop. In the end both parties asked the Emperor Frederick I Barbarossa to decide. The Emperor confirmed Frederick as new Archbishop, gave him the Imperial Regalia, and sent him immediately to Rome for his Ordination, where Pope Adrian IV confirmed him.
     "Frederick has gone in History as an outstanding man, who had won the heart of many by his kindness and friendliness. The Xanten Totenbuch describes him as a Prince of the highest humanity.
     "He was always loyal to the Emperor and accompanied him during the second campaign in Italy. There he died on 15 December 1158 in Pavia following an accidental fall from his horse. He is buried in Altenberg .

Adolf V/VI (?) Graf von Berg died on 7 August 1218 at Damietta, Egypt (now).1
     Adolf V/VI (?) Graf von Berg
Per Genealogics:
     "Adolf was born before 1176, the son of Engelbert, Graf von Berg, and Margareta van Gelre. He was the elder brother of Engelbert II von Berg, archbishop of Cologne. He became Graf von Berg after the death of his father in 1189 in the Third Crusade.
     "By 1204 Adolf married Bertha von Sayn, daughter of Heinrich II, Graf von Sayn und Saffenberg, and Agnes von Saffenberg. Their only child Irmengard, Adolf's heir to Berg, would have progeny, marrying Heinrich IV, duke of Limburg.
     "His rule coincided with the conflicts between the Hohenstaufen and the Welfs. He changed sides several times, fought at one stage for Otto IV, the son of Heinrich 'the Lion', whom his cousin Archbishop Adolf of Cologne had raised to be King of the Germans. At a later stage he supported Philipp von Hohenstaufen, the son of Friedrich Barbarossa, and finally joined the young Friedrich II von Hohenstaufen, the son of Philipp's elder brother Emperor Heinrich VI, who appeared on German soil in 1212 at Konstanz. Once again he was on the right side. The Hohenstaufen showed their appreciation by choosing Adolf's brother Engelbert as archbishop of Cologne.
     "In 1212 Adolf took part in the Albigensian Crusade. In 1215 he conquered the imperial palatinate of Kaiserswerth and released the Hohenstaufen-favouring Rhine-Westphalian bishops imprisoned there by Otto IV. His support for Emperor Friedrich II in the conflict over the imperial throne was decisive in settling the dispute in Friedrich's favour.
     "In 1217 Adolf set out for the Fifth Crusade to the Holy Land. He died in battle on 7 August 1218 as commander of the force besieging Damietta on the Nile Dekta. With his brother Engelbert, murdered in 1225, the line of Berg-Altena died out."2



Adolf V/VI (?) Graf von Berg
Per Wikipedia:
     "Count Adolf VI of Berg (born before 1176 – died 7 August 1218 at Damiette during the Hungarian crusade against Egypt) ruled the County of Berg from 1197 until 1218.
Life
     "He was the son of Engelbert I of Berg and Margaret of Geldern, and the oldest brother of Engelbert II of Berg (1185–1225), also known as Engelbert of Cologne or Saint Engelbert. Adolf married Berta von Sayn (died 1244), a daughter of Henry II von Sayn and Agnes zu Saffenberg. They had one daughter:
** Irmgard of Berg, heiress of Berg (died 1248–9). She married Henry IV, Duke of Limburg.
     "In 1212 Adolf took part to the Albigensian Crusade against the Cathars. And in 1215 he took over the Kaiserpfalz Kaiserswerth.
     "Adolf left on 1218 with the Fifth Crusade to Egypt and died on 7 August 1218 of a plague as commander of the Lower-Rhenish and Frisian troops in Damiette, in the delta of the Nile.
     "His brother, the Archbishop Engelbert II of Berg followed him as ruler of Berg, which later went to the husband of Adolf's daughter, Irmgard of Berg.

Engelbert II von Berg Archbishop of Köln
Per Wikipedia:
     "Count Engelbert II of Berg, also known as Saint Engelbert, Engelbert of Cologne, Engelbert I, Archbishop of Cologne or Engelbert I of Berg, Archbishop of Cologne (1185 or 1186, Schloss Burg – 7 November 1225, Gevelsberg) was archbishop of Cologne and a saint; at an unknown age he was notoriously murdered by a member of his own family.
Early life
     "Engelbert was born in 1185 or 1186 in Schloss Burg (present Burg an der Wupper [de]), the younger son of Count Engelbert I of Berg and his wife Margarete of Guelders. He was educated at the cathedral school in Cologne. From 1198 (at the age of twelve or thirteen) he held the office of provost of St. George in Cologne and from 1199 to 1216 he also held the office of cathedral provost at Cologne Cathedral. He further acquired at various times a number of other provostships: in Cologne, Aachen, Deventer and Zutphen. He was elected Bishop of Münster in 1203 but he declined because of his age.
     "Engelbert was excommunicated by Pope Innocent III in 1206, on account of his support for his cousin Adolf of Altena, archbishop of Cologne, in the interests of Philip of Swabia against Otto of Brunswick but was pardoned in 1208. In 1212, as an act of penance for his earlier rebellion, he took part in the Albigensian Crusade. He gave his allegiance to the future Frederick II, Holy Roman Emperor, after the Battle of Bouvines in 1214.
Archbishop of Cologne and after
     "Engelbert was elected Archbishop of Cologne as Engelbert I on 29 February 1216 and was consecrated on 24 September 1217, in which office he remained until his violent death.
     "Engelbert came to enjoy the trust of Frederick II, Holy Roman Emperor, becoming imperial administrator (Reichsverweser) in 1220 and guardian of the Emperor's son Henry. In 1222, Engelbert crowned twelve-years-old Henry as King of the Romans in Aachen. Engelbert remained Henry's tutor and guardian until his death.
     "It is not clear to what extent Engelbert was personally involved with the Confoederatio cum principibus ecclesiasticis, a treaty with the ecclesiastical princes, which Frederick signed on 26 April 1220, although as Administrator of the German Kingdom (Gubernator Regni Teutonici) he must have had at least some input. Clearly, however, in the increased powers it gave to all ecclesiastical princes it was of benefit also to the archbishops of Cologne, and the establishment and development of the new powers was part of Engelbert's archiepiscopal strategy.
     "When Engelbert succeeded, the rights and territories of the archdiocese were in bad order, following a long period of civil unrest in Germany. He engaged himself at once in a series of campaigns and strategies to win them back and safeguard them, principally against the Dukes of Limburg and their allies the County of Cleves. Engelbert in turn set up alliances with Brabant and Namur.
     "Engelbert also defended his personal inheritance as Count of Berg against Duke Waleran III of Limburg. In 1218 Engelbert's elder brother Count Adolf VI of Berg died on the Fifth Crusade without a male heir. Waleran considered himself entitled to inherit the County of Berg because his son Henry was married to Irmgard of Berg, Adolf's only daughter. According to the Salic law, however, Engelbert was the heir. He won the dispute in two feuds. In 1220 a peace was concluded and Waleran's claim settled by the payment of a year's revenues.
     "Engelbert granted town privileges to many places, including Wipperfürth, Attendorn, Brilon, Siegen, Werl and Herford, Vianden, Hamm, Neuerburg and Manderscheid.
     "During his incumbency as archbishop, Engelbert continued to fight for the re-establishment and security of the Archdiocese of Cologne both as an ecclesiastical authority and also as a secular territory. (It was said of him that despite his personal piety he was more of a monarch than a churchman). Not only did he constantly battle, by all means necessary, for the secular well-being of the lands of the archdiocese, of which he may be counted the de facto founder as a significant state; he also took energetic measures for the effective regulation of the City of Cologne itself; and he was a zealous champion of the religious throughout his archdiocese.
Death
     "Engelbert earned the respect and affection of his subjects through his devotion to justice and his energy in maintaining law, and took great pains to ensure the well-being of the religious within his authority. However, his effectiveness in achieving his goals by all means necessary, including military action, his allegiance to the pope and the emperor, and his uncompromising defence of the law and the rights of religious persons and bodies, brought him into conflict with the nobility, including his own family, and this led to his death.
     "His cousin Count Frederick of Isenberg was vogt of Essen Abbey, and abused his position by defrauding the nuns. Engelbert was determined to protect the nuns' interests and sought to bring Frederick to justice. On 7 November 1225 while they travelled together to Cologne from a judicial hearing in Soest, Engelbert was killed, possibly by Frederick, in a defile near present-day Gevelsberg near Schwelm.
     "It seems probable that a group of disaffected nobility was behind the attack which may have been intended to take Engelbert captive rather than kill him.
     "Engelbert's body was taken to Cologne on a dung-cart, and when examined, found to have forty-seven wounds.
Veneration
     "Engelbert's body was buried in Cologne Cathedral on 24 February 1226 by order of Cardinal Conrad of Urach, the papal legate, who declared him a martyr, though a formal canonization did not take place.[1] His remains are preserved today in a Baroque shrine prepared on the authority of Ferdinand of Bavaria, archbishop of Cologne, who in 1618 also ordered the celebration of his feast on 7 November.
Notes
a. The description "Engelbert I of Berg" can refer either to Count Engelbert I of Berg or to the subject of this article, his son, Count Engelbert II of Berg, if referred to by his ecclesiastical office, when the form "Engelbert I of Berg, Archbishop of Cologne" sometimes occurs besides the more usual "Engelbert I of Cologne".

Margareta von Hochstaden
Per Genealogics:
     "Margarete was the daughter of Lothar I, Graf von Hochstaden, and Mechtild von Vianden. She was the sister of Cologne's archbishop Konrad von Hochstaden, who laid the foundation stone for the Cologne Cathedral on 15 August 1248. About 1240 she married Adolf VI, Graf von Berg, who ruled the county of Berg from 1246 to 1259. Of their four children, Heinrich and Irmgard would have progeny.
     "Her marriage to Adolf VI von Berg had an important political context. Her brother Konrad, who became archbishop of Cologne in 1238, had fought on the side of Pope Gregory IX against the Hohenstaufen Emperor Friedrich II. After a hard-fought crusade into the Jülich territory a peace had been achieved which was sealed with her wedding.
     "As regent after Adolf's death in 1259, she added the county of Hückeswagen to the county of Berg. On 6 July 1260 the estate was handed over to the counts of Berg by the brothers Franco and Heinrich von Hückeswagen, renouncing all financial and legal claims.
     "She lived first at the castle of Burg, the seat of the counts of Berg, but later moved to her widow's seat, the fortress of Hückeswagen. There she died on 30 January 1314, aged 100."5 GAV-23.

Adolf V-VII (?) Graf von Berg
Per Wikipedia:
     "Adolf VIII of Berg (also referred to as Adolf V) (c. 1240 – 28 September 1296) was the eldest son of Count Adolf VII of Berg and Margaret of Hochstaden.[1]
     "In 1259, Adolf succeeded his father as Count of Berg. King Rudolph I of Germany allowed Adolf to move his mint to Wipperfürth in 1275. In 1276 Adolf granted city rights to Ratingen and in 1282 to Wipperfürth. Adolf tried in vain to have his brother Conrad, Provost of Cologne, installed as Archbishop of Cologne after the death of Engelbert II of Falkenstein in 1274, but Siegfried II of Westerburg was chosen instead.
     "In 1279 Adolf's uncle Waleran IV, Duke of Limburg died leaving one daughter, Ermengarde, wife of Reginald I, Count of Guelders. When she died in 1280 without issue, her husband claimed the Duchy of Limburg even though Adolf also had a claim to Limburg as Waleran's eldest nephew. Adolf tried unsuccessfully to assert his claim and in 1283 he sold his right to Duke John I of Brabant. The counter-claims of Duke John and Reginald I ultimately led to the Battle of Worringen in 1288 in which Adolf supported the victorious Brabant. Archbishop Siegfried was captured and imprisoned by Adolf in Schloss Burg for 13 months. As a result of the victory, Adolf was also able to elevate Düsseldorf to the level of city. Through trickery, Archbishop Siegfried was able to capture Adolf in 1292 and held him in prison until he died on 28 September 1296.
     "In 1249, Adolf was betrothed to Elisabeth of Guelders, daughter of Otto II, Count of Guelders and half-sister of Reginald I, his rival to the Duchy of Limburg. Elisabeth died 31 March 1315 and is buried with her husband in the Church of Solingen-Gräfrath. As Adolf and Elisabeth had no issue, Adolf's brother William I of Berg succeeded him as Count of Berg.

Wilhelm (?) Graf von Berg
Per Wikipedia:
     "William I of Berg (c. 1242 – 16 April 1308) was the son of Count Adolf VII of Berg and of Margaret of Hochstaden.[1]
     "Upon the death of his brother, Count Adolf VIII of Berg, William succeeded as Count of Berg. Formerly serving as a monk, he was absolved of his religious vows by the pope in order to take the position. His tenure was notable due to increased and constant conflict with the Archbishop of Cologne. In 1300 he supported King Albert I of Germany against the Rhenish electors which further strengthened his position against the archbishop. During his life he started foundations for monasteries and churches, including those in Beyenburg (now part of Wuppertal) and Gräfrath. He was also served as the benefactor of the citizens of Hückeswagen.
     "William married Irmgard of Cleves (?–11 May 1319), widow of Conrad I of Saffenburg and daughter of Dietrich VI, Count of Cleves. William and Irmgard are buried in the Berg family vault of the Altenberg Cathedral. As William had no children, his nephew Adolf IX of Berg, son of his brother Henry of Berg, Lord of Windeck succeeded him as Count of Berg.

Heinrich von Berg Herr zu Windeck died between 8 March 1290 and 1296; Med Lands says d. 08 Mar 1290-1296; Genealogics says d. 1290/95.1,2
     Heinrich von Berg Herr zu Windeck
Per Genealogics:
     "Heinrich von Berg, Herr zu Windeck, was born before 1247, a younger son of Adolf VI, Graf von Berg, and Margarete von Hochstaden. He was a brother of Adolf VII and Wilhelm I von Berg.
     "With his wife Agnes von der Mark, daughter of Engelbert I, Graf von der Mark, and Kunigunde von Blieskastel, he had five children of whom only Margareta would have progeny, marrying Otto IV, Graf von Ravensberg.
     "From 1271 to 1281 Heinrich ruled the estate and moated fortress of Morp on behalf of his brother Adolf VII. He supported Jan I, duke of Brabant, in the Limburg Succession War, and fought for him in his victory at the Battle of Woeringen in 1288. In the following years he ruled the castle and estate of Windeck, one of the four main Berg estates, in the possession of the Berg family since at least 1247, probably again on behalf of his brother.
     "A Berg legend ('The healing spring in the Ohmbach vale') has been linked to Heinrich. According to the legend a Graf Guntram von Kranz, ruling Windeck, met his death at the Battle of Göllheim on 2 July 1298 alongside the emperor-elect Adolf, Graf von Nassau. This suggests that Heinrich may have died in the battle i.e. as late as 1298, though other sources suggest an earlier year between 1290 and 1295.
     "Heinrich is buried in the monastery church of Alternberg, along with other members of the house of Berg."2
