8 Famous Witches Burned at the Stake

The sad truth about witches is that you don't have to be one -or even believe in them- to be executed for witchcraft. Read about eight women in history who each paid the price for what others thought she was doing. Some, such as Catherine Monvoisin, may have been guilty of other crimes.
Also known as La Voisin, Catherine Monvoisin was a midwife and French sorceress who was a personage in the Affaire des Poisons, in which several members of the aristocracy were executed for witchcraft and poisoning. She was a well-known practitioner of medicine, provider of abortions and maker of love powders and potions, and she served many famous Parisian women. Monvoisin was burned at the stake in 1680.
