Count Frederick IV of Zollern (c. 1188 – c. 1255), also known as Burgrave Frederick II of Nuremberg, was Burgrave of Nuremberg from 1204 to 1218 and Count of Zollern from 1218 until his death.
Frederick IV was the younger son of Frederick I of Nuremberg-Zollern (c. 1139 – c. 1200) and his wife Sophia of Raabs (died c. 1218) . After his father's death, he was appointed as his successor as Burgrave of Nuremberg. In 1218, Frederick and his older brother Conrad I divided their inheritance: Conrad received the Franconian possessions and became Burgrave of Nuremberg; Frederick received the ancestral County of Zollern. He is considered the founder of the Swabian line of the House of Hohenzollern.
He died c. 1255 and was succeeded as Count of Zollern by his son Frederick V (died 24 May 1289).
