Abstract

Anna Maria Föllerin was the 27 year-old, Catholic wife of Johann Friedrich Föller. She worked as a oxen shepherdess. She confessed to the poisoning of several people which resulted in severe illness, permanent disabilities and many deaths. Some victims were targeted because she disliked them. Others were poisoned so that she might make money by being paid to fetch a doctor or medicines from the apothecary. Anna Maria Föllerin was found guilty of multiple murders and cripplings and was sentenced to be tied to an animal skin then dragged to the execution site where she was to have one hand cut off then suffer beheading. She was to be buried at the execution site where her head and hand would be nailed to the gallows.
