The House of Plettenberg is a Westphalian noble family of the Uradel. It dates back at least to 1187, when Heidolphus de Plettenbrath was mentioned in a document by Philip I (Archbishop of Cologne).[1] Two branches of the family still exist today: the Counts of Plettenberg-Schwarzenberg (Protestant) and the Counts of Plettenberg-Lenhausen (Roman Catholic).
