"This invasion will gain you nothing. We're a democracy. The people have decided…"
―Governor Sio Bibble[src]

Sio Bibble was the human male governor of Naboo and a member of the Royal Advisory Council during the final years of the Galactic Republic and the early days of the Galactic Empire.


Bibble was elected as the governor of Naboo during King Veruna's reign.[4]

Invasion of NabooEdit

In 32 BBY, Senator Palpatine contacted the Royal Advisory Council only to lose communication. Bibble was one of the first to suspect there would be an invasion. However, Amidala refused to do any action that would lead them to war. Later, Bibble's suspicions proved correct when Naboo was invaded by the Trade Federation. Bibble was arrested along with the other people at Naboo at that time. Then, Jedi Master Qui Gon Jinn and his padawan, Obi Wan Kenobi comes to rescue them. Queen Amidala (really her decoy Sabe) agreed that she should plea to the Senate. Bibble was on high hopes that Senator Palpatine might help them.[2] However, Bibble decided to stay behind to protect his people. Later, Queen Amidala did free Naboo. Bibble attended Jinn's funeral, who was killed in the battle that liberated Naboo. Then, he attended the celebration of Naboo's victory, handing the Globe of Peace to Boss Rugor Nass.[3]

The Separatist CrisisEdit

Bibble continued to serve as governor under Amidala's successor, Queen Jamillia. In 22 BBY, he attended a Council meeting. They talked about how the Separatist Crisis might become a war and then redirected the conversation to Senator Amidala, who was in danger of being killed and had to hide on Naboo with a bodyguard, Anakin Skywalker.[5]

The Clone WarsEdit

Queen Jamillia was succeeded by Queen Neeyutnee by 21 BBY, which Bibble also served.

In 20 BBY, he greeted Palpatine to Naboo and attended the Festival of Light. That night, bounty hunters tried to kidnap Palpatine but their plans were thwarted by Kenobi (who was disguised as Rako Hardeen at that time). The next morning, Bibble was put in a rescue group along with Queen Neeyutnee and Senator Amidala.

Mission to BarbottaEdit

In 19 BBY, Bibble went with Senator Amidala to the Galactic Senate when Queen Julia of Bardotta contacted the Republic. Palpatine presented the queen the people he chose to go to Bardotta: Senator Organa of Alderaan and Senator Amidala of Naboo. However, the queen specifically said she wanted Junior Representative Jar Jar Binks of Naboo to go, puzzling everyone. By 19 BBY, Queen Neeyutnee was succeeded by Queen Apailana, whom Bibble also served.

Imperial EraEdit

Soon, Palpatine was revealed to be a Sith called Darth Sidious. Sidious seduced Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker (who was also Senator Amidala's secret husband) to the Dark Side of the Force. Skywalker turned into Darth Vader and thus, began the Great Jedi Purge where almost all of the Jedi were killed. When Amidala heard this, she tried to turn Skywalker back to the Light Side but he was too blinded by his lust for power. Amidala died of a broken heart some time later. Bibble was one of the people who mourned at Amidala's funeral.[6]
