Lady Dimitrescu (or “Lady D”) is a fictional character in the survival horror video game Resident Evil Village, published by Capcom. One of the major antagonistic figures of Village, she is presented as a gigantic noblewoman with vampire-like traits who resides with her three daughters in her stronghold Castle Dimitrescu, which is near the titular Eastern European village encountered by protagonist Ethan Winters. Dimitrescu governs the village alongside three mutant lords under the oversight of a supreme leader known as Mother Miranda.

Following initial previews and demos of Village released by Cap Com between late 2020 and early 2021, Lady Dimitrescu unexpectedly rose in popularity internationally and has become the subject of a significant amount of fan-driven art, cosplay, memes, and erotica.

Polish actress, model, and stuntwoman Helena Mankowska was tapped in 2018 to be the face model for the iconic character of Lady D, which has given her the opportunity to connect with fans around the globe.
