Woman in White
A folk tale with many variations. The most famous is the Mexican story about La Llorona – the Sobbing Woman.
The story takes place long ago when a beautiful Indian princess, Dona Loveros, fell in love with a handsome Mexican nobleman, Don Montescarlos. The princess loved the noblemen deeply and had two children with him, but Montescarlos refused to marry her. When he finally deserted her and married another woman, Dona went mad with rage and stabbed her two children. Authorities found her wandering the street, sobbing, her clothes covered in blood. She was charged with infanticide and sent to the gallows.
Ever since it is said that the ghost of La Llorona walks the country at night in a bloody dress, crying for her murdered children. If she finds any child, she’s likely to carry it away with her to the nether regions, where her own spirit dwells.
