Ebba-Margareta von Freymann
The daughter of an Austrian father and a Swedish mother, von Freymann grew up bilingual in both countries. During World War II, the family moved to Germany.
In 1977 the widowed poetess moved to her daughter Thelma von Freymann, who lived near Hildesheim. There she translated, with the help of her daughter, every poem of the anthology The Adventures of Tom Bombadil (published as Die Abenteuer des Tom Bombadil in 1984).
