Ruwee Naberrie was a human male from the planet Naboo and a member of the Naberrie family.[1] He was the father of Sola Naberrie and Padmé Amidala,[3] an elected queen and later member of the Senate of the Galactic Republic for their homeworld.[4] During his lifetime, he was also a friend of Senator Onaconda Farr of Rodia.[5]


Early lifeEdit

Ruwee, the son of a cloth weaver in the Naberrie family, married a woman named Jobal at some point in his life on Naboo. They would have two daughters, Sola and Padmé.[6] Through his elder daughter, he became grandfather of Ryoo and Pooja Naberrie. When Padmé turned fourteen years old, she was elected Queen of Naboo and adopted the name of "Padmé Amidala."[6] Successful and well-liked, she served two four-year terms, including during the Invasion of Naboo. Though she'd planned to retire from public life, Padmé accepted when her successor, Queen Jamillia, asked her to represent Naboo in the Galactic Senate.

Death of PadméEdit

Following the end of the Clone Wars and the execution of Order 66, Ruwee attended the funeral of his youngest daughter with Jobal and Sola after Padmé's death at Polis Massa.[2]


The same year of Padmé's passing, Ruwee became the grandfather of both Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa.[2] He later became a great-grandfather with the arrival of Ben Solo, son of his granddaughter Leia and smuggler Han Solo.[7]

Behind the scenesEdit

Ruwee Naberrie was portrayed by Graeme Blundell in Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith.[8][9]

During the filming of Attack of the Clones, Blundell traveled to Lake Como, Italy in order to shoot his scenes as Ruwee Naberrie,[9] but all his scenes were deleted from the film's final cut. His scenes at the end of Revenge of the Sith, however, remained unchanged and make it into the finished version of the film.

Prior to the Star Wars canon reboot by The Walt Disney Company in order to explore new storylines in anticipation of a Sequel trilogy, Ruwee Naberrie's backstory was expanded upon in many expanded universe stories, but since the reboot of the canon, these stories became part of the Star Wars Legends continuity and are therefore non-canonical.
