The First Battle of Theed (also known as the Siege of Theed) was one of the first battles of the Invasion of Naboo.

Immediately after capturing other Naboo cities, OOM-9, head command battle droid, attacked the Naboo capital of Theed, his forces led with deadly Armored Assault Tanks. Battle droids poured into the city, occupying important districts and killing all Royal Naboo Security Forces that opposed them, and destroyed a comm dish. Without an official army, Naboo's capital soon fell to the Droid Army of the Trade Federation. During the battle, Lieutenant Gavyn Sykes escaped the carnage along with his superior Captain Kael. They liberated two Heavy STAPs in their escape.

AATs drove right up to Theed Royal Palace which was infiltrated with Queen Padmé Amidala, Captain Panaka, and Theed governor, Sio Bibble, taken hostage. Many citizens from the city were rounded up into detention camps and the streets are sealed off[1], except for patrolling Federation forces.

When two Jedi (Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi) tried to gain entry to the secured city, the central bridge across the Solleu River was blasted apart by an AAT, cutting the city off from other regions.

Theed's officials were briefly liberated by the two surviving Jedi as security battle droids attempted to bring them to a detention camp. The Queen and Panaka were able to flee aboard the Royal Naboo Starship and depart from Naboo.
