Slovakia – The White Lady of Levoca
The White Lady of Levoca was remarkably beautiful. Her name was Julianna Korponay. She would arrive late each week at mass and walk to her special, carved pew in the front of the church. She would distract all of the men. After a while of this, they moved her to the back of the church, behind a pillar, where no one could see her and she would be less of a distraction.
But she was also hungry for money and power. One night, she sold the town to the enemy that was outside the walls by leading them into the city through the secret underground passages that were built to supply the city with water during periods of siege.
Her betrayal was punished and she was built into one of the walls in the underground.
