We seem to have covered most of the Elves' history in this forum. One that I don't remember much about, was Tom Bombadil's wife. Can anyone remember much about her, and her history ?

It's quite a mystery, but probably she was a Maiar that took care of the river or something like that... Goldberry was her name, and her picture in the MERP manual was sooooo cute!

Yes it is commonly accepted that she is a maiar.

I was sure about that as well, I was not sure about her function in nature or why she was there... She was the daughter of the River, so I guess she was figuratively so, fo there is no other exaple of Maiars being children of other Maiar... so I guess she was the Maiar of the river, or somehow related to the Mair that took care of the river... like a nymph

Not in the Sillmarillion though.
In the Ainulindale even the couples such as Manwe and Varda are presented as complemetarity and afinity of characters more than a real relationship whou could give birth to other Ainur
