The White Lady

As mentioned in the novel Trianon. Via Tiny-Librarian. To quote:
The “White Lady” is a ghostly apparition of a woman dressed all in white, who is said to appear whenever a descendant of the House of Habsburg is about to die.
According to folklore, she was seen at the Hofburg Palace in Vienna the night before Marie Antoinette was executed. She was also reported to have been seen by some near Mayerling, where crown Prince Rudolf committed suicide, and by his mother, Empress Elisabeth, shortly before she was assassinated.

I now have a severe case of the heebie-jeebies, and goosebumps the size of golf balls.
