Star Wars

Episode I

Padmé was born on the bountiful planet of Naboo fourteen years prior to its invasion, under the name of Padmé Naberrie. Although her parents were of modest origins, Naberrie was identified as a gifted and brilliant young girl at an early age. As a child, she devoted herself to public service.[2] Her father was a friend of Senator Onaconda Farr, who represented the solar system of Rodia in the Senate of the Galactic Republic. Naberrie was very fond of the Rodian, whom she referred to as "Uncle Ono." At age twelve, Naberrie participated in the Legislative Youth Program, in which she met a slightly older boy named Palo. The two fell in love, but their relationship did not last, as they parted ways when Palo left politics and chose to become an artist.[6] Two years later, at the tender age of fourteen, Padmé Naberrie was elected Queen of Naboo, and she adopted Amidala as her name of office. Although she was not the youngest sovereign ever elected, she would later question her own maturity at the time of her election. Shortly after her election, the young queen was faced with a major crisis when the Trade Federation decided to lay siege to her home planet. The Federation's devious leader, Viceroy Nute Gunray, intended to force her to sign a treaty that would legitimize the invasion in the eyes of the Galactic Republic. However, Amidala refused to submit to the Federation. The Viceroy then sent her to Camp Four. However, Amidala was rescued in the eleventh hour by two Jedi, Qui-Gon Jinn and his apprentice Obi-Wan Kenobi. The two had been charged with negotiating a truce with the Trade Federation, but Gunray had tried to kill them as soon as they had arrived. The Jedi freed Amidala and her entourage from the clutches of the Federation's battle droids, and the group fled the blockaded Naboo aboard the queen's royal starship. After meeting Anakin Skywalker, She became part of the Battle of Naboo, which her people won.

Episode II

The execution of Amidala, Skywalker, and Kenobi was to be carried out by several creatures brought into the the arena, a reek, an acklay, and a nexu. As they were released and attacked, Jedi Master Mace Windu arrived and the Jedi revealed themselves. A full out battle erupted, and though Amidala had been wounded by one of the creatures, she also grabbed a blaster and fought side-by-side with the Jedi. Of the original two hundred Jedi who had arrived, only a few were left and the situation seemed lost. At that point, Master Yoda arrived with the newly christened Grand Army of the Republic and the Battle of Geonosis began in earnest. Skywalker, Kenobi, and Amidala pursued Count Dooku in a Republic gunship, but Amidala and the trooper were knocked from the troop bay by a cannon blast. They were able to call backup, but arrived too late to stop Dooku who had fought against Skywalker and Kenobi before being defeated by Yoda. After the battle, Skywalker and Amidala returned to Naboo where they were secretly married.

Episode III

As the Outer Rim Sieges raged on, Amidala had fewer opportunities to see her husband. While she did become pregnant, she was unable to share this news with Skywalker until after the Battle of Coruscant. The news, while exciting for both parents, placed them in a bind as it threatened to reveal their marriage. Meanwhile, Skywalker began suffering from nightmares foreshadowing the death of Amidala. Not wanting to risk this and suffer the same pain when his mother died, Skywalker turned to Jedi Master Yoda for advice without revealing too much of his fears. Yoda advised that to overcome his nightmares and fears, Skywalker had to learn to let go to those close to him, something that did not sit well with Skywalker. His fears for Amidala increasing, Skywalker turned to his close friend, Chancellor Palpatine, who revealed to him that the Sith Lord Plagueis the Wise had come close to learning the power of immortality. Meanwhile, Amidala became increasingly concerned with the events of the war and power held by Palpatine and the increasing rift this was causing between herself and Skywalker. When the Jedi discovered Palpatine's identity as the Sith Lord Darth Sidious, they attempted to arrest him. Palpatine killed three of them before being defeated by Mace Windu. However Skywalker interfered slicing off Windu's hand, giving Sidious the opportunity to kill the Jedi. Skywalker, seeing Sidious as the only way to save his wife, pledged himself to the dark side. Sidious then initiated Order 66 declaring the Jedi to be traitors to the Republic. When Skywalker returned to Amidala's apartment from killing the Jedi at the Jedi Temple, he informed her that the Jedi had become traitors but that his loyalties stayed with the chancellor. He then left for the planet Mustafar to put an end to the leaders of the Separatist Alliance. Amidala meanwhile attended a meeting of the Senate where the chancellor declared the formation of the Galactic Empire and himself as Emperor. She was then visited by Obi-Wan Kenobi who revealed to her that Skywalker had turned to the dark side and that he needed her help in stopping him. Amidala refused though, and Kenobi correctly identified Skywalker as the father of the baby she was carrying. He then left, but later followed Amidala into her starship as she left Coruscant for Mustafar to meet Skywalker. Upon her arrival, Skywalker, now fully in the dark side as the Sith Lord Darth Vader, saw Kenobi and blamed Amidala. He became violently angry towards Amidala who refused to follow Skywalker down the path he had chosen, and used the Force to choke her. After Kenobi defeated Vader during a lightsaber fight, he retrieved the unconscious Amidala and brought her to a medical facility on Polis Massa. Amidala, unable to face what had become of Skywalker, had lost the will to live and her body began to shut down. However, she gave birth to twins, who she named as Luke and Leia. Despite all this, Amidala still believed that Skywalker held some good inside of him, a belief she shared with Kenobi before she died. Her funeral was held on Naboo shortly thereafter. Darth Vader, upon being rescued by Darth Sidious and then placed in a life supporting suit, asked after his wife. Sidious informed him that in his anger, it appeared that he had killed Amidala. This fueled Vader's anger even more to a destructive level. Amidala's death haunted Vader for the rest of his life. Despite the supremely brutal and ruthless being the Sith Lord became, he could never let go of the grief and guilt caused by his wife's passing. Decades later, Leia Organa would remember an impression she had of her mother as being very beautiful, kind, but sad. However, Organa was unsure if she really did ever see her mother or just invented these memories to fill the hole in her life.
