"Doesn't matter who you are. You could be the Prince of Coruscant. No one will find you here."
―Guerra Derida to Obi-Wan Kenobi[src]

"Prince of Coruscant" was a term used to describe a person of prime importance or quality, in reference to Coruscant, capital of the Galactic Republic, and the noble title of Prince. In 44 BBY, the Phindian thief Guerra Derida once used the term in front of the Jedi pupil Obi-Wan Kenobi, in order to explain that no one would ever find him in the mines of Bandomeer, even if he were a fairly important man.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

This phrase was first mentioned in the 1999 novel Jedi Apprentice: The Dark Rival, written by Jude Watson.[1] It is unknown whether "Prince of Coruscant" was just a figure of speech or a notion of a past political reality. At any rate, Coruscant had been part of a non-monarchical society since circa 25,053 BBY—with the foundation of the Galactic Republic.[2]
