Jutte Eeuwouts was a Dutch Anabaptist martyr, who was hanged at The Hague on 17 March 1536. Jutte Eeuwouts was a wealthy lady living at Poeldijk in the Dutch province of South Holland near The Hague. Her house was a center of Anabaptist activity; here a number of fanatical and revolutionary Anabaptists used to meet, among whom was Adriaen Adriaensz, known as "the king of Israel." On 8-9 March 1536, the magistrate surprised a meeting of about 40 persons in the house of Jutte Eeuwouts; some were killed, including Adriaen Adriaensz; others, including Jutte, were arrested. The whole group was put to death at The Hague. Jutte was executed in a specially cruel way.
