9 Mystifying Cases of the Doppelganger Phenomenon

Queen Elizabeth I
Before giving up the ghost in 1603, the powerful monarch of England, Queen Elizabeth I, saw her doppelganger lying in her bed motionless. Her supine doppelganger was described as "pallid, shivered and wan", which shocked the Virgin Queen. Elizabeth, known to be level headed, strong of will and savvy, would have known better than to attribute the apparition to spirits and superstition, but still she knew that folklore considered such an occurrence a bad sign. She died shortly thereafter.
