Limburg-Hohenlimburg was a county in Germany in the Middle Ages. It was created as a partition of Limburg-Isenberg in 1246, and was annexed to Limburg-Styrum in 1304. In the 15th century, the house Limburg-Styrum was divided into Limburg-Broich, controlling Limburg-Hohenlimburg, and Limburg-Styrum who kept the lordship Styrum. Limburg-Hohenlimburg passed to the Daun-Falkenstein in 1511, then Neuenahr-Alpen in 1542. Limburg-Hohnlimburg became a possession of the counts of Bentheim at the end of the 16th century, who kept it until it was mediatized to the Grand Duchy of Berg in 1808. The count of Bentheim still owns the fortress of Hohenlimburg.
