The county of Holstein-Segeberg was a county in the state of Holstein from 1273 to 1308 and a line of the noble family of Schauenburg and Holstein. The only count of Holstein-Segeberg was Adolphus V, nicknamed the Pomeranian, who was born in 1252 and died in 1308.

History[edit]

After the death of his father, John I, in 1263, his sons, Adolphus V, John II and Albert I (died 1300, who became the cathedral provost (Dompropst) of Hamburg) initially ruled the County of Holstein-Kiel jointly. In 1273 they divided the inheritance, with John II continuing to rule Kiel. Adolphus V ruled Segeberg and thus founded the line of Holstein-Segeberg.[1] When he died in 1308 without male issue, Holstein-Segeberg fell once again to Holstein-Kiel. Adolphus, the younger son of Count John II, who was born in 1281, ruled Holstein-Segeberg from 1308 until he was stabbed to death in 1315.
