Marijtgen (Marritgen), wife of Huyge Jacobsz Kraen an Anabaptist drowned on 25 April 1534 at the Hague, Holland. She was a native of Hazerswoude, Dutch province of South Holland. The account given by van Braght's Martyrs' Mirror, stating that she was drowned at Haarlem in 1532, is not correct. Recent research has proved that both Marijtgen and her husband Huyge were among the revolutionary Münsterites who sailed in March 1534 en route to Münster; this fact seems to have been unknown to van Braght.
