Jenneken Pots, an Anabaptist martyr, was executed on 28 January 1576 at Antwerp, Belgium. It is unknown how this martyr and Lynken Clercx, who was executed on the same day, were put to death. Jenneken was sentenced for rebaptism, attending forbidden meetings of the Mennonites, and possessing a number of heretical books.
