Pop quiz, Tolkien fans! Who was the wife of Tom Bombadil, also known as River-woman’s daughter? This River-maiden is also in Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar, so you might have met her on your travels as well if you play the MMO. Take a guess and head to the full article to see if you’re right.
Here’s a little brain-teaser for Tolkien fans out there: who is the wife of Tom Bombadil? If you guys guessed Goldberry, also known as the River-woman’s daughter, then you are correct.
Goldberry also appears in Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar, living contentedly with Tom in seclusion in the Old Forest, on the borders of Buckland.
Goldberry is part of two quests that you’ll be able to do in Lord of the Rings Online. First is the quest “By Axe and Fire” where GoldBerry sends you to dispose of a Wood-troll.
The other quest is “Grimbark’s Reclamation.” Here, Goldberry relates the tale of the Red Spam, the Red-maid, and the great tree Oakenbark. She sends you on a quest to get the uncorrupted acorns from the tree.
Remember to be polite to Goldberry now. Check back for more updates to Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar.
