Meinhard II, Count of Gorizia, nicknamed Meinhard the Elder (c. 1160 – 1231) was a member of the Meinhardiner dynasty. He was a ruling Count of Gorizia and Vogt of Aquileia.

He was a son of Margrave Engelbert II and his wife, Adelaide of Scheyen-Dachau-Valley, a daughter of Count Otto I of Dachau-Vallay, an early member of the House of Wittelsbach.

Meinhard II married three times:

  1. Kunigunde, a daughter of Count Conrad I of Peilstein, a member of the Sieghardinger dynasty, from whom the Meinhardiner claimed to descend.
  2. Adelaide, about whom little is known
  3. a daughter of Count Henry I of Tyrol

From these marriages he had several children, but none of them survived childhood.

In 1220, Meinhard II succeeded his brother Englebert III as Count of Gorizia. He died in 1231 and was succeeded by his nephew Meinhard III.
