A doppelgänger is a look-alike or double of a living person, sometimes portrayed as a paranormal phenomenon, and in some traditions as a harbinger of bad luck.

The word doppelgänger is often used in a more general sense to describe any person who physically or behaviorally resembles another person.

A famous Victorian apparition was the strange appearance of Vice-Admiral Sir George Tryon. 

He was said to have walked through the drawing room of his family home in Eaton Square, London, looking straight ahead, without exchanging a word to anyone, in front of several guests at a party being given by his wife on 22 June 1893 while he was supposed to be in a ship of the Mediterranean Squadron, maneuvering off the coast of Syria.

Subsequently it was reported that he had gone down with his ship, HMS Victoria, that very same night, after it had collided with HMS Camperdown following an unexplained and bizarre order by him to turn the ship in the direction of the other vessel.
