FALL OF THE REPUBLIC
Naboo’s queen, Padmé Amidala, escaped with the help of two Jedi Knights and made her way to Coruscant, where she and Senator Palpatine sought justice for their planet. Finding the Senate hobbled by bureaucratic infighting, a frustrated Amidala called for a no-confidence vote in Valorum. Palpatine would succeed him as Chancellor, beginning his rise to power.
The Trade Federation invasion was thwarted by an alliance between Naboo’s human colonists and the native Gungans. But during the Clone Wars, Naboo’s association with Palpatine and Padmé made the planet a Separatist target once again.
