Lady-Lilith

Lilith, in the Sumerian-Akkadian mythology, the night demoness of the Babylonian pantheon. The ancients in Mesopotamia believed that Lilith at night drank blood from children, and also seduced and tortured sleeping men. In Semitic mythology and Judaism, it is believed that this woman was Adam's first wife.
Lilith is mentioned in the Dead Sea Scrolls, Ben-Cyr Alphabet, The Book of Zohar. After asking God for the opportunity to give birth to children without the participation of a man, she received a witching spear. A particle of Lilith's body, cut off by this spear, became a man. Jewish mythology describes that instead of this “gift," the angels killed up to 1000 of her children every day. “For before Lil was Lilith,” reads the Hebrew text. The legend about her inspired the English poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1882) to the poem "Eden Bower".
