Who is a La Llorona?

La Llorona dressed in white walking through a field of flowers with a skeleton face painted on her body and head
La Llorona is a legendary figure in Latin American folklore.

She is a ghostly woman who wanders near bodies of water, crying for her children whom she drowned in a fit of rage or despair.

La Llorona was once a beautiful woman named Maria who married a wealthy or unfaithful man.

He either abandoned her for another woman or mistreated her and their two sons.

In some versions, she killed her sons and herself to spite him.

In others, she was distracted by her lovers and let her sons drown accidentally.

Either way, she was condemned to roam the earth as a spirit, looking for her lost children and luring anyone who hears her wails to their doom.

La Llorona is a popular ghost story that is often told to children as a warning or a scare tactic.

She is also associated with La Malinche, the indigenous woman who served as Hernán Cortés' interpreter and lover during the Spanish conquest of Mexico.

La Malinche is seen as both the mother of the mestizo people and a symbol of betrayal for her role in aiding the Spanish.

La Llorona has inspired many artistic and cultural works, such as movies, songs, books, and paintings.

The Curse of La Llorona is a 2019 horror film based on the folklore of La Llorona.
