Leentgen, an Anabaptist martyr, was put to death in 1564 in the Sint Pieters cloister at Ghent, Belgium, together with her daughter Pieryntgen Ketels. Exact date and method of execution are unknown. The names of these martyrs are found in the hymn, "Als men schreef duyst vijfhondert jaer ende twee en tsestich mede," found in the Lietboecxken van den Offer des Heeren (Supplement, No. 1).
