Hans Greuel, the head of the Anabaptists of Augsburg, Bavaria, Germany, who took a special interest in his brethren who fled to Augsburg. He was a native of Geltendorf (Bavaria). Among those he baptized were Anna, wife of Thomas Melchinger, who was seized in the Easter meeting at Augsburg in 1528, also the widow Else Knollin in Augsburg about Christmas 1527, and soon afterward in Mindelheim the cobbler Jakob Walch with three other persons, who were for that reason seized by the council of Augsburg. Greuel, who was also being sought by the council, left Augsburg late in the summer of 1528. Nothing more is heard of him.
