Henry was a son of Margrave John I of Brandenburg and his third wife, Jutta, the daughter of Duke Albert I of Saxony. The origin of his nickname "Lackland" is not known. Henry was more than fifteen years younger than his brothers John II, Otto IV "with the arrow" and Conrad I and was therefore likely to be excluded from governing when his brothers inherited the Margraviate. It was not until 1294 he began to participate in the government of the country. When he did, he received — according to an excerpt from the Bohemian chronicler Přibík Pulkava — Delitzsch as his seat. Delitzsch was located in the Margraviate of Landsberg, which Margrave Albert II of Meissen had sold to the Margraves of Brandenburg.

As Margrave of Landsberg, he fought several feuds with neighbouring princes. He was excommunicated by archbishop Burchard II of Magdeburg. In 1311, Henry lost a fe...

John I, Margrave of Brandenburg was from 1220 until his death Margrave of Brandenburg, jointly with his brother Otto III "the Pious". The reign of these two Ascanian Margraves was characterized by an expansion of the Margraviate, which annexed the remaining parts of Teltow and Barnim, the Uckermark, the Lordship of Stargard, the Lubusz Land and parts of the Neumark east of the Oder. They consolidated the position of Brandenburg within the Holy Roman Empire, which was reflected in the fact that i

The preparations for the reorganization may have begun in 1250, when the Uckermark was acquired, but no later than 1255, when John I married Jutta, the daughter of Duke Albert I of Saxony-Wittenberg.
