Albert II (died c. 1325), a member of the House of Gorizia (Meinhardiner dynasty), ruled as governor of the County of Gorizia from 1323, on behalf of his nephew Count John Henry IV. He inherited from his father only the lands in the Puster Valley.


Albert II was a younger son of Count Albert I of Gorizia and his wife Euphemia, a daughter of the Silesian duke Konrad I of G?ogów. He thereby was the younger brother of Henry III, ruling Count of Gorizia upon their father's death in 1304. He inherited only the lands in the Puster Valley. When his brother died in 1323, Albert acted as regent for Henry's minor son John Henry IV.

Albert married Elizabeth, a daughter of Landgrave Henry I of Hesse and, secondly, Euphemia of Mätsch, daughter of bailiff Ulrich II. He was the father of:

  • Elizabeth, married Count Herman of Heunburg (d. 1322) and secondly Count William of Schaunberg-Trüchsen
  • Catherine, married Ulrich of Waldsee, who was Landeshauptmann of Styria
  • Clara, married Herdeggen of Pettau, field marshal of Styria
  • Catharina zu Neuhaus, married Ulrich of Taufers at Utenheim
  • Albert III (d. 1365)
  • Henry IV (d. 1361)
  • Meinhard VI (d. 1385)

Albert's three sons succeeded as Counts of Gorizia upon the early death of their cousin John Henry IV in 1338.
