Where is Padme Amidala buried

Discussion: Padmé Amidala

Salutation in introduction [edit]

I have to bring that up for discussion now: Is it really necessary to mention all of Padmé's name variants in the introduction? Your Excellency, Your Highness, Queen Amidala of Naboo, etc. are all typical forms of address that would also fit any other queen / king. In my opinion, that's not worth mentioning, not at all.
We don't either Wookie driver in the Han Solo article, just because Leia used that as a salutation. At least I hope we don't. It couldn't even be used as a redirect, since it's just too general.
What do you say about it ...?
Greetings Anakin Skywalker 21:34, Aug 17, 2006 (CEST)

Hm ... you are right that this is unnecessary (Commander Cody 13:16, Mar 2, 2007 (CET))

I actually find it very interesting to know. But why are they called Padmé Naberrie and Padmé Amidala?

Please always sign your contributions by putting four tildes () after your contribution. That about Amidala is also in the article ... Naberrie is her family name and Amidala is her name during her tenure as Queen of Naboo. However, she still had the name Amidala long after she was no longer a queen.

Oh, okey, I probably skipped that. On my discussion page you can see a steam powered R2-D2 (= R2-S2). Greetings Darth Nihilus 09:26, Apr 12, 2007

shouldn't padme be called "padme skywalker" later on? 18:41, Sep 27, 2007 (CEST)

No, at least she is not mentioned in any official source (^^ I own) as Padmé Skywalker. Greetings - Saint Klingon 18:49, Sep 27, 2007 (CEST)

To take up the topic of "Amidala-Naberrie" again, I think it should be included in the article Amidala are designated. After all, this was not just a "pseudonym" during her tenure as Queen, but a name that she completely adopted and kept during her tenure as Senator. She is also called that in Episode II, first in the scrolling text and also addressed by many, e.g. Yoda: Senator Amidala, your tragedy on the landing pad, terrible. Actually everyone calls her that way later, both publicly and privately, which is probably sufficient evidence that she adopted this name as her own and not only wore it for a short time. She was born under the name "Naberrie", but "Amidala" was her last name and for other items we also use the last name of the person (see Mara Jade Skywalker or Leia Organa Solo), not the birth name. Fordo Ka'ra 8:31 PM, Mar 4th 2008 (CET)

After having dealt in detail with Padmé during my research on the article, I can actually agree with you and also plead for a shift to the lemma "Padmé Amidala". When this topic was first brought up, I was skeptical, but now I also think it makes sense.
Greetings Anakin SkywalkerAdmin 2:01 p.m., Mar 12 2008 (CET)
The discussion is already old, but there was no longer any contradiction about this matter. I also believe that the name Padmé Amidala was ultimately hers and for this reason I would be strongly in favor of postponing the article. - Sol(catch me) 02:04, Jan. 29, 2009 (CET)

Huh? [Edit]

How does it work in this one picture that she is in the imperial palace in Theed? She was already dead by then.

You mean the picture with the spoiler warning, there is not Padme as you probably think, the woman with the child, but Padme is on the large painting in the background Jango 17:51, May 25, 2007 (CEST)

Huh, the second [edit]

I can't imagine she's only 14 on Episode I.

But that's how it is. In Episode I: The Illustrated Encyclopedia it is said that she is only 14. I know, it doesn't look like it, but it is like that. --Bel Iblis 14:43, May 31, 2007 (CEST)
Yes, that's funny, but that's how it is. Should have taken a younger actress. Because Natalie Portman (the actress) is already 18th during the film - The Holy Klingon 15:03, May 31, 2007 (CEST)
No, that was good the way it was done in the film, otherwise she would have looked way too young in Ep. 2. I just wonder who chose such a young girl to be king. And if she was the best, I wonder how you know so much about politics at 14. Well ... May the force be with you.Shaak Ti ~ Jedi Council 4:53 p.m., Apr 24, 2009 (CEST)

Queen [edit]

Jedi vs. Sith - The Essential Guide to the Force states that Padmé 32 and a half Year VSY became queen. Half a year before the invasion, during which she was 14. When she entered the royal office she was 13 and not 14. Because she became a princess a year earlier (therefore 33 1/2 VSY) and then she was still 12 - HoloNet News ("and then became Princess of Theed at age 12." ). Does it say somewhere that she was already 14 when she became queen, or was it stated that way because of the year? If it is nowhere to be found, the two statements in the article would have to be corrected, because according to these two sources, she was each younger due to the half year, even if it is roughly the same year number, because it is not calculated every six months. - Sol(catch me) 02:43, Jan. 3, 2009 (CET)

Yes, the fact file says that she was 14 years old at the time of her appointment, but I would say it is being changed anyway because Jedi vs. Sith - The Essential Guide to the Force is much more up-to-date than the fact file. It is best to provide individual proofs immediately so that this information has a hand and foot. Well researched! Regards, - Anakin Skywalker 12:00, Jan. 3, 2009 (CET)
So in terms of time, it doesn't quite fit in front and back. The Amidala Journal and Secrets of Naboo mention that she was princess for two years, not one, and then became queen. But if she became a princess at the age of 12 (then probably 34 VSY), which is stated in many places, and 46 VSY was born, she would have had to be elected queen 32 VSY in order to be 14 (which is not possible, however unless the events of Episode I play approximately 31.5 VSY). Since she was elected (at least six months) before, at the time of Queen in Disguise, she would have been only 11 (.5) years old two years before the election as Queen. The (at least) six months between the appointment and the events of Episode I seem to have been disregarded. The two years as a princess would have to have been one and a half, otherwise the connections don't make any sense. - Sol(catch me) 20:52, Jan. 19, 2009 (CET)

youngest queen

In the novel for episode 3 it is said that Padme would be the youngest Queen Naboos ever elected. I mean in episode 2 she says she isn't the youngest, right? - Yoda41Admin 12:32, Feb. 6, 2009 (CET)

That she Not the most recent one is stated in many sources. I've never read that she was the youngest after all, that will probably be a (translation?) Mistake. For example, Apailana was younger. - Sol(catch me) 12:52, Feb. 6, 2009 (CET)
ok, thanks for the confirmation ^^. I thought so too. This novel is full of mistakes. Greetings - Yoda41Admin 13:43, Feb. 6, 2009 (CET)

Mental injuries? [Edit]

I was recently on Wookiepedia again, there I read that Padmé died due to a fracture of her hyoid bone after Vader's strangulation of power. Is that occupied somewhere? I would be interested in whether the droids had overlooked it. Gtx - Lucrister 04:35, Sep 11 2009 (CEST)

Quote [edit]

How did Leia know that Amidala was sad, beautiful, etc.? Did she find out through stories? Because the quote sounds like Leia saw Amidala in person. Of course I know that Leia (and Luke too) were babies and that Amidala died while they were born. Ghorm Fett 16:34, Sep 21. 2009 (CEST)

Chronology (TCW) [edit]

In the novel Wilder Raum, Anakin and Padmé meet almost continuously and Obi-Wan comes to her right after the battle and talks to her about Ani ... How should we write that? All the Clone Wars (not The Clone Wars) things say the opposite. Kind regards CC-1997Transmission space 09:53, Oct 20, 2009 (CEST)

I've got the beginning out Wild space already added in the Padmé article under "Battle of Geonosis". I don't know the exact plot of the novel by heart, but this part takes place right after the Battle of Geonosis at the beginning of the Clone Wars and before the Clone Wars- and The Clone Wars-Series.

TCW text [edit]

I have just taken the following text from the article, which I am now copying into here. I didn't want to delete the text entirely, but in this form it just doesn't fit into the article. It is written in the present and not - as it should be - in the past. In addition, the text is almost a summary of the individual TCW episodes and hardly Padmé-centered, which makes the text very long and inflated - that is, tough to read. I actually look to update my articles after a while, and so it will be with this one. You are welcome to make other additions, but unfortunately this does not fit into the picture of the previous article.

I will improve this in the near future:

In the hangar of Theed Palace, Senator Padmé Amidala, MP Jar Jar Binks and the protocol droid C-3PO are received by Queen Neyutnee and Captain Gregar Typho. Senator Amidala learns from the Queen that Naboo is threatened by battle droids, which could be the first signs of an imminent invasion. While the Naboo security forces picked up a few droids in the grasslands, Amidala knows only too well that a few droids can't get the Galactic Senate to act. When Captain Typho receives the information that the arrested droids can be analyzed, Padmé and the Queen march to a nearby workroom, where they examine a B1 battle droid and a tactical droid more closely. On the tactical droid, Padmé immediately notices that it is smeared with mud, which seems unusual to her, since he was overwhelmed in the grassland. At Padmé's orders, C-3PO interrogates the tactical droid, whereupon he mentions a virus, a small amount of which has escaped from a secret laboratory on Naboo. The further conversation with the droid is suddenly interrupted when Jar Jar knocks over a row of shelves full of spare parts while hunting for the beetle, which then bury the droid under them. The droid will be badly damaged and shorted out. Jar Jar apologizes and talks about the rarity of these rotten beetles, which can only be found under the perlot trees in the eastern Gungan marshland. Padmé, who was a little annoyed at first, would now, with Jar Jars' help, know where the secret laboratory might be. Immediately, the Naboo contact Yoda and Mace Windu from the Jedi Council to request help. Two Jedi are to take care of this delicate matter. Padmé asks that Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker be assigned this mission, which is met with approval. Then Padmé, accompanied by Jar Jar Binks, sets out to track down the secret laboratory, while Captain Typho is supposed to examine the memory of the tactical droid.

Padmé looking for the secret laboratory
In the grasslands, Padmé and Jar Jar, who are traveling with a Naboo reconnaissance ship and airtight safety suits, meet the Shaak guardian Peppi Bow. The Gungan woman is upset because her Shaak herd has drunk from the river and some animals collapsed shortly afterwards, dying. After Peppi Bow realizes that the two have good intentions, she willingly shows them the way to the perlot trees. But Padmé advises her not to accompany her and instead places her under the protection of some Naboo soldiers.In the marshland, Padmés and Jar Jar's steps are followed by the mad scientist Nuvo Vindi, who sets his battle droids on them to capture the senator and her MP. Meanwhile, Jar Jar stumbles over a branch and lands directly on a hatch that leads into the interior of the secret laboratory. Padmé can just alert Typho and order a geoscan before she and Jar Jar are overpowered and captured by battle droids.
Padmé and Jar Jar found the laboratory
Padmé and Jar Jar are taken to Dr. Nuvo Vindi abducted, who explains to the two that he is able to create life. It's the infamous blue shadow virus that has been considered extinct for years. Just one bomb armed with the new form of the virus would be enough to infect an entire planet. Padmé is shocked and explains that no life form is immune to the deadly pathogen and that it was exterminated precisely because of its dangerousness. Dr. Vindi replies that war is an equally dangerous disease, the cause of which should be eradicated as well.

Meanwhile, Anakin, Obi-Wan and Ahsoka Tano arrive at Theed Palace. Fearing for Padmé, Anakin instructs Ahsoka, together with Peppi Bow, to look for Padmé. With the help of the geoscan of the coordinates transmitted by Padmé, Captain Typho is able to make assumptions about the storage room of the bombs in Dr. To hire Vindi's laboratory. So it is decided that the south end of the secret laboratory will be blown up with a bomb. The aim is to divert the droids while Obi-Wan and Anakin storm the complex through the access hatches. So Anakin sets out to free Padmé and arrest Dr. Vindi. When Anakin Dr. Reaching Vindi, Vindi gives him the choice of either capturing him or saving Padmé. Anakin decides to defeat the battle droids and free Padmé from their torture while Dr. Vindi hastily tries to escape from his laboratory complex. Just as Obi-Wan and his bomb clearance squad reached the storage room, the virus bombs, the bombs were found by the fleeing Dr. Vindi activated via a remote detonator. To make matters worse, Obi-Wan discovers that one of the bombs has been stolen from the shelf. Padmé says she saw Dr. Vindi had handed a bomb to one of his droids. The group then splits up to search separately for the last virus bomb. While Anakin and Obi-Wan render the scientist harmless, Padmé and Jar Jar successfully search for the lost virus bomb. This is how the bomb clearance squad succeeds in deactivating all bombs.

While Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi lead the captured researcher Nuvo Vindi away, Padmé Amidala, who is still in the secret research laboratory on Naboo, triggers the alarm because she and Captain Rex cannot find the virus capsule in a defused bomb. As the two suspect, a droid with the blue shadow virus is sneaking around the lab. This is how the droid actually manages to release the virus, which triggers a red alert. Ahsoka Tano together with Captain Rex and some other clone warriors try to escape into the security room. Meanwhile, Padmé and Jar Jar are in an emergency room. On a landing pad above the underground laboratory, Anakin asked what was going on after hearing an explosion that released the virus. Ahsoka explains to him what happened. Then Padmé joins in, who, like Jar Jar Binks, was able to put on a protective suit in good time and is thus safe from the blue shadow virus. She explains to him that she has to get to Ahsoka in order to then prevent the droids from leaving the underground and thus let the poison gas escape from the locked laboratory. When contact is broken, Anakin tries to get out of Dr. Elicit an antidote from Vindi. But the separatist researcher laughs maliciously because there is no antidote anyway. Naboo is lost as soon as the first droid escapes from the laboratory. Obi-Wan and Anakin both take the shuttle towards Theed. Once there, Dr. Vindi immediately taken into custody by the security forces. Captain Typho takes Obi-Wan and Anakin to the control room because he found a clue about the antidote. This is a root that can only be found on the planet Iego. Anakin and Obi-Wan leave immediately. Meanwhile, Ahsoka gives Padmé her exact position, and then Ahsoka notices that she and the clone warriors are already infected with the virus.

Padmé, Ahsoka, and Rex can all stop droids.

After Padmé and Jar Jar have reached the security room, they set out to destroy the battle droids together. They split up to attack the droids from two sides, soon uniting again. Meanwhile, Anakin and Obi-Wan landed on Iego and are looking for the antidote. Meanwhile, in the underground research laboratory on Naboo, the separatists used droidekas to kill Ahsoka and the others. Ahsoka destroys them, but the air duct of Padmé's suit was damaged in the exchange of fire. Now she is infected too. When all the droids have been successfully destroyed, Ahsoka and Padmé, who are already very weak, contact Anakin and Obi-Wan. While waiting for the antidote, Padmé and Ahsoka took care of the clone warriors. When they received the antidote a little later, Padmé is carried away on a stretcher by a medidroid. Anakin, who saw this, immediately ran after her. When Anakin spoke to her she woke up, he informed her that she would be healed.

When Cad Bane took the Senate, Padmé, Organa, and other seniors voted on it Privacy Restriction Act from. Eventually she was saved by Anakin.[1]

Broken heart? [Edit]

Why does Padmè die at the end of Episode III? Anakin has always been vicious and extremely aggressive, it can hardly have anything to do with his transition to the Sith. in episode II he slaughtered an entire area of ​​Tusken robbers, including their wives and children. Her answer when he confesses to her mass murder: "To feel anger is human". I mean what's the point Isn't the murder of the Tusken robbers and their families a crime? I can understand that the Emperor doesn't think that's bad, but Padmè? What about the Jedi? They obviously don't care either. Then, the same thing happens again in red: Anakin murders the Jedi and their defenseless youths. So what can she have died of? And why is she abandoning her newborn children? Leia says yes, she can remember her mother, she doesn't mention anything about death, only that she was very sad. How does it all fit together? - 17:05, Feb. 28, 2010 (CET)

In addition, there is something else in EP3, she loses her faith in Anni because he turns his back on her and with it on the Republic, compared to the fact that he is leaving her, so I think that she didn’t get tired of seeing Anni on the dark side of power with the children in the stomach and so I mean she died from it May the force be with youThe exiled ~ R6-M4 19:17, March 1 2010 (CET)
You don't die of a broken heart, besides, shortly before her death, she said that she knows that there is still good in Anakin. I think rather that she died as a result of his power stranglehold, and Sidious's statement that he killed her in his anger also fits better. -- 3:19 PM, Aug 10, 2010 (CEST)
