Maeyken Daniels (Mayken uyt Waes van Ghendt), an Anabaptist martyr, was strangled and burned at the stake on 21 February 1559, at Middelburg in the Dutch province of Zeeland. Being a native of Roesselare in Flanders, Belgium, she was held in prison for a long period, while the magistrates of Middelburg sought information about her from the Roman Catholic priest of her native town.
