The Princess Ní is an early poem written by J.R.R. Tolkien.

The first draft of the poem was dated 9 July 1915. It was published in 1924 within Leeds University Verse 1914-24 (p. 58).[1][2] The name probably refers to the Celtic feminine patronymic .[2]

The poem was one of those Tolkien rediscovered, refurbished and revised around 1961 while preparing The Adventures of Tom Bombadil, where it was published as Little Princess Mee.[3]
