Baltazo

One of the demons supposed to have possessed a young woman of Laon, France, in the year 1566. He went to dine with her husband under the pretext of freeing her from demonic possession, which he did not accomplish. It was observed that at supper he did not drink, which reinforced the belief that demons are averse to water.
