Janneken Roelandts (in Lietboecxken, Roolants), an Anabaptist martyr, executed in 1569 at Ghent, Belgium (manner of execution and exact date unknown). She was the wife of Peter Stayaert, who was executed at the same time. She is celebrated in the song "Als men schreef duyst vijfhondert jaer, ende twee en tsestich mede," found in the Lietboecxken van den Offer des Heeren, 1578 and following editions. This martyr is not found in official sources at Ghent. The Bibliographie statement that she was probably the wife of Roelandt Stayaerds is wrong.
