Padme Amidala was the Queen of Naboo before stepping down to become a Senator Padme Amidala
Born Padme Amidala, she became the Queen of Naboo at 14.

During the Trade Federation attacks on Naboo, she refused to let them take over her home.

She was sent away to a prison camp, but the Jedi helped her escape to the planet Tatooine.

Disguised as her servant, Padme went with Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn to search for parts to repair their damaged spaceship.

Still in disguise, Padme met a nine-year-old slave boy named Anakin Skywalker and they quickly became friends.

Once their ship was repaired, Anakin went with Padme and the others back to Naboo.


Jar Jar Binks
With the help of Jar Jar Binks, a Gungan, Padme was able to get the other Gungans to help free the planet from the Trade Federation.

When her time as Queen ended, she became a Senator for Naboo.

But once again she became a target for people opposed to her beliefs and the Jedi Knights had to come to her rescue.

She later falls in love with Anakin and they have two children - Luke and Leia.
