Ebba-Margareta von Freymann (neé de Pers) (* 13. 12. 1907 in Vienna, Austria; † November 1995 in Söhre, Germany) was a german poetess and translator of the most poems written by J.R.R. Tolkien. Between 1969 and 1970 she translated the songs and poems of the Lord of the Rings into german, which was a great success for her. Von Freymann translated, with the help of her daughter Thelma von Freymann, every poem of the anthology The Adventures of Tom Bombadil (published as Die Abenteuer des Tom Bombadil 1984).
