Anna Maria Zwanziger


Anna Maria Zwanziger

Anna Margaretha Zwanziger (7 August 1760 – 17 September 1811) was a Bavarian serial killer.[1] She used arsenic, which she referred to as “her truest friend”. Zwanziger was employed as a housekeeper and would poison her employers (often judges) with arsenic and then nurse them back to health to gain their favour. Before she was beheaded, she said it was probably a good thing she was to be executed, as she did not think she would be able to stop.[citation needed] She killed four people, one of whom was a baby.[citation needed] Four others survived.[citation needed]
