Adriana Lambrechts (d. 1559)
Adriana Lambrechts, an Anabaptist martyr and wife of the martyr Henrick Dacho, born "in de Langestrate" and who is not mentioned in the martyr books, was drowned at the Steen prison at Antwerp on 17 or 19 March 1559, because she had been rebaptized, and was "stiff-necked in the doctrine of the Anabaptists." This martyr must be identical with Naentken Leerverkoopster.
