"The reason for the war was plasma, and the Houses that contributed most to funding the mercenary army were House Tapalo and House Veruna."
Cosinga Palpatine[src]

House Veruna was a noble Naboo family that resided on the planet Naboo. According to Cosinga Palpatine, in about 135 BBY, House Veruna and House Tapalo conspired to hire a group of mercenaries to attack Naboo's native Gungans, as part of a ploy to gain access to Naboo's plasma resources. Years later, Ars Veruna of House Veruna was elected as Naboo's monarch.
