Meinrad was a son of Prince Maximilian I of Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen 1636–1689 from his marriage to Maria Clara 1635–1715, the daughter of Count Albert of Berg-s'-Heerenberg He was still a minor when he succeeded his father in 1689 and initially, he stood under the guardianship of his mother and his uncle Franz Anton, Count of Hohenzollern-Haigerloch

He studied at the University of Ingolstadt and embarked on a military career He fought in the Battle of Vienna, the Hungarian rebellion and the Nine Years' War In 1692, Emperor Leopold I raised the Swabian branch of the House of Hohenzollern to Imperial Princes, under the condition that they would practice primogeniture in the future, ie they were not allowed to increase the number of imperial princes by further subdividing their principalities In 1695, Meinrad II concluded a treaty of inheritance with the Elector of Brandenburg: if either the Swabian or the Brandenburg line of Hohenzollern were to die out, then the other line would inherit their territories

In 1702, Meinrad's uncle Francis Anthony died Both his sons had joined the clergy, so Hohenzollern-Haigerloch fell back to Hohenzollern-Sigmaringen
