Johann Hartmann von Rosenbach (1609–1675) was the Prince-Bishop of Würzburg from 1673 to 1675.

Johann Hartmann von Rosenbach was born in Stammheim, Florstadt on September 15, 1609.[1]

The cathedral chapter of Würzburg Cathedral elected him Prince-Bishop of Würzburg on March 13, 1673, with Pope Clement X confirming his appointment on September 10, 1674.[1] He was consecrated as a bishop by Stephan Weinberger, auxiliary bishop of Würzburg on January 6, 1675.[1]

During his time as Prince-Bishop, the Franco-Dutch War spilled into the Prince-Bishopric of Würzburg, with forces under Henri de la Tour d'Auvergne, Vicomte de Turenne invading the bishopric.[2] These forces were eventually beaten back by troops under the command of Raimondo Montecuccoli.[2]

He died on April 19, 1675.[1]
