Henry II of Münsterberg (c. 1396 – 11 March 1420) was Duke of Münsterberg (Ziębice) since 1410 until his death (as co-ruler of his brother John I).

He was the third son of Duke Bolko III of Münsterberg by his wife Euphemia, daughter of Duke Bolesław of Bytom.

Life[edit]

There is little known about his life. Henry II only appeared in the official documents with his older brother and main ruler John I. He died unmarried and childless and was probably buried in the Cistercian monastery of Heinrichau (pl) (Henryków). After his death, his brother John I ruled alone.
