Margaretha (16th century)
Margaretha, wife of the peasant Hans of Schlüchtern (Schlüechta) in the Palatinate, Germany, one of the 14 Anabaptists who were cross-examined on 16 September 1535 in the castle at Passau, where they lay in prison. She states that she had been baptized upon confession of her faith ten (?) years before by Jorg of Ingersheim (see Leserlin), and that she came from Moravia, and wished to return to the Oberland. Like her husband, she could not be moved from her faith.
