Anna (Anle, Annele) Malerin and Ursula Ochsentreiberin were among the first Anabaptist martyrs in Tyrol. They were both taken captive with some other worshipers on 15 August 1529 at a service on a meadow near Mills, not far from Hall on the Inn, by the judge of Hertenberg. Whereas most of the prisoners signed a recantation and accepted church penance, Anna and Ursula remained true to their faith. They were therefore condemned to death in Hall and drowned in the Inn. Their steadfastness in the face of death evoked general admiration. The two women are commemorated in a song, "An unser Frauentag, das geschah," in which their capture is related.
