In brief: Many reasons

Hunger, pain, fear, wants her mother. All these are possible.

In brief: Seperation Anxiety

This is probably not sudden.
Babies, and adults, wake several times during the night. We usually put ourselves back to sleep. At certain ages (9-15 mos) children show a peaks in seperation anxiety, and want parents to "help" them get back to sleep. Be careful how you respond, or you may end up with a child whose days and nights are reversed.
