"Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis the Wise?"
"No."
"I thought not. It's not a story the Jedi would tell you. It's a Sith legend."
―Palpatine and Anakin Skywalker[src]

The "Tragedy of Darth Plagueis" was a so-called "Sith legend"[1] that recounted the murder of Darth Plagueis by the hand of his own apprentice,[2] Darth Sidious.[3] Toward the end of the Clone Wars, Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine recounted that tale to the troubled Jedi Anakin Skywalker in hopes of luring him to the dark side of the Force. In fact, Palpatine was none other than the public persona of Darth Sidious,[2] and he only framed the tale of Plagueis' murder as an old legend so as to avoid suspicion.[1]
