<!-- This line starts with Eberhard (younger son of Adolf II of Berg) who inherited Altena and founded Isenberg county, he had three sons: Arnold who inherited north-western part of Altena and Isenberg, Adolf who later became Archbishop of Cologne, and Friedrich who inherited south-eastern Altena. The line of Arnold continues first with his son Eberhard II who dies childless and is succeeded by 2nd son Friedrich II who is then excommunicated, stripped and exiled from the county for murder of his cousin Engelbert II of Berg, Archbishop of Cologne and also eventually being executed in 1226. Friedrich II is succeeded by his son Dietrich I of Isenberg who founded a new county of Limburg at Hohenlimburg (Limburg an der Lenne). The line of younger son Friedrich I, who inherited south-east parts of Altena, continues with his son Adolf who after 1226 managed to obtain the seized lands of mentioned Friedrich II and reunited the lands of Altena thus becoming the 1st Count of the Mark i.e. La Marck family.

Regarding the main line and split to Styrum and Broich line it should be mentioned that Dietrich I was later involved in the "War of the Limburg Succession" (1283-1289) and sided with Archbishop of Cologne against the winning Brabant side. This meant that after the "Battle of Worringen" (1288) and the decisive victory of the Duke of Brabant, Hohenlimburg castle was also stormed and Dietrich I and his family once again had to flee...they took up residence at Styrum where they built a castle and from now on permanent residence of the main line. After 1301 and the death of Dietrich I, his eldest son Johan inherited Styrum and his line became known as Limburg-Styrum i.e. Counts of Limburg (at Styrum). Dietrich's younger son Eberhard managed to reclaim Hohenlimburg and his line eventually obtained Broich becoming known as "Limburg-Broich" but otherwise claimed and took the title of Counts of Limburg at Lenne (Limburg an der Lenne i.e. Limburg-Hohenlimburg). -->
