Sophie von Mandach was the mother of the owner of the Hohenegg castle in Tyrol, Austria (now Italy). Loesche reports that she gathered a group of Anabaptist women about her and took no taxes from the Brethren. Nothing further is known concerning her relations with the Anabaptists. Her son joined the Schwenckfelders.
