Michael Seifensieder (Michiel Zeepzieder, also Michl Böhem), an Anabaptist martyr. While traveling from Wallern in Bohemia to Tyrol in 1536, he was betrayed and arrested at Vienna, Austria, and burned at the stake on 31 March 1536, with his brethren Hieronymous Käls and Hans Oberecker. Loserth's assertion (Mennonitisches Lexikon III, 140a) that he was identical with Hans Mandl is incorrect.
