A White Lady is a type of female ghost , dressed in all white reportedly seen in rural areas and associated with some local legend of tragedy. While White Lady legends are found in many countries around the world, they are most prominent in parts of the United States, Ireland and Great Britain. Common to many of these legends is the theme of loss of a daughter, husband or father and a sense of purity before death as opposed to the Lady in Red ghost. In popular medieval legend , a White Lady is fabled to appear by day as well as by night in a house in which a family member is soon to die. Also appearing within photos just before or after death. Called Dama Branca or Mulher de Branco in Portuguese , the Brazilian Lady in White is said to be the ghost of a young woman who died of childbirth or violent causes.
