A friend and I are working on a project that is set in the years after the Great Hyperspace War (roughly 300 years afterwards). We'd like to set part of it in the Empress Teta system, and involve Teta's descendants. However, the wiki article on Empress Teta is vague as to how old she actually was, or how long her reign lasted -- a paragraph at the beginning says her reign lasted 175 years, while a later part of the article says she lived 175 years. Seeing as she was apparently an adult when her reign began, they can't both be right.
Do we have any idea as to how old Empress Teta was when she died, or, barring that, any info on how old she was during the Great Hyperspace War?
To be clear, the article doesn't say Teta died at age 175, it says she wrote the history of the Koros System at age 175. Her reign is 175 years long, and she became empress in 5,010 BBY, meaning she died in the year 4,835 BBY. We do not know the age at which she died, because we don't know how old she was when she took the throne. Now, since you're working on a fanon project, you are allowed to make a few assumptions (which this encyclopedia is not allowed to do). I'd say she looks to be in her mid-to-late-thirties in the Tales of the Jedi comics. Assume maybe 35, for a nice round number. That would mean she became Empress at age 25 (not unreasonable; Elizabeth II was 26), and died at age 200. Again, that's not canon, but since you're working on a fanon project, you have a bit of leeway with respect to the assumptions you can make. I hope that helps!
