Lippijntgen Roetsaert (d. 1576)
Lippijntgen (Lippinkin) Roetsaert (Roetzaerts) was an Anabaptist martyr, a daughter of Jan Roetsaert, living at Bellem near Ghent, Flanders, who was beheaded on 19 July 1576, inside the Gravensteen castle at Ghent with Barbele Pieters and Kreupel Sijntgen (Sijntgen Bornaige), while on the same day Michiel Willems was burned at the stake. Lippijntgen had been (re)baptized in 1565. This martyr is not found in van Braght, Martyrs' Mirror, but is apparently identical with Lippijntgen Stayaerts, who van Braght says was executed in 1569; this must be an error.
