Abstract

Details about the circumstances leading to the poisoning death of Maria Barbara Kettler by her 20 year-old, single daughter, Margaretha Kränzlein. Kettler strongly disapproved of the man Kränzlein wanted to marry. Kettler had let it be known that her daughter had moved secretly to the home of her lover so the girl decided to kill her mother. She was sentenced to be broken on the wheel. The sentence was lessened to beheading by the sword.
