Friedrich VII, Count of Zollern (d. after 6 October 1309) was a German nobleman. He was the ruling Count of Zollern from 1298 until his death.

Life[edit]

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.

Issue[edit]

Friedrich and Euphemia had two sons:

  • Fritzli (d. 1313), Lord of Zollern
  • Albrecht (d. 1320), married Guta of Gutenstein
