The Princess Ní is a poem written by J.R.R. Tolkien and published in 1924 within Leeds University Verse 1914-24 (p. 58).[1] A heavily revised version was printed in The Adventures of Tom Bombadil as Princess Mee.[2] It is said that this poem was a bit of marginalia found in the Red Book of Westmarch.[3]
