The Lady On the Grey
“At the end of your days, Rides the Lady on the Grey, Where she takes you, none can
say, For all of They have passed away.” - Unknown. Early in the novel ​The Graveyard Book ​we
are introduced to an interesting and mysterious character, The Lady On The Grey. The Lady on

religion and Greek mythology, death, known as Thanatos is one of the children of night. He has a

four horsemen along with famine, war, and conquest. The grim reaper can be seen in many
different ways throughout regions and time.
“Once you truly pass away, Follow the Lady on the Grey.” Something interesting is
when the 300 active spirits are arguing about keeping Bod, she appeared and told them “The
