The term "White Lady" or "White Woman" refers to lots of different things in different mythologies, but is usually a name given to female ghosts, often because they appear to be wearing wedding dresses or something similar. A detailed list of haunted places can be found at the Shadowlands
, although it's not for the faint hearted!
In German mythology, a Weisse Fraue (literally White Lady) is a name given to female spirits who can be seen during the day, bathing or combing their hair. You can see a picture of one of these elf-like ladies on the right.
