"We must keep faith in the Republic. The day we stop believing democracy can work is the day we lose it."
―Queen Jamillia

Jamillia was the successor of Queen Amidala, formally styled as Her Royal Highness, Queen Jamillia of Naboo. Jamillia, like her predecessor, was a young woman when elected (though not as young as Padmé Amidala was during her first term), with a regal and dignified bearing.

Biography

Jamillia's predecessor, after serving two successful four-year terms as Queen, was popular enough that many of the Naboo wanted to amend their constitution to allow Amidala to serve a third term. However, in 25 BBY, Padmé Amidala graciously declined the honor, and Jamillia became Naboo's next elected monarch.[2] The new Queen asked her still-popular predecessor to continue her career in public service by becoming Naboo's Senator, even though Amidala had reached the normal age for the Naboo to retire from politics and was well within her rights to do so. Padmé agreed and became Naboo's representative in the Galactic Senate.

The membership of the Royal Advisory Council under Queen Jamillia was apparently different from the membership under Amidala, with the exception of Sio Bibble.

Queen Jamillia of Naboo.

During the Separatist Crisis, Jamillia was one of many planetary rulers who opened up their worlds to aide many refugees loyal to the Galactic Republic who were fleeing the worlds seceding from the Republic. For this she received much criticism, particularly from unions representing Naboo spice miners, whose main ports became a part of the refugee movement on Naboo.

In 22 BBY, after surviving a Separatist-backed assassination attempt, Padmé left Coruscant for the safety of Naboo. Just after the start of the Clone Wars, during the run-up to the Battle of Ohma-D'un, Jamillia appointed C-3PO as Naboo's ambassador to the Jedi Order. Shortly afterwards, Jamillia was replaced by Queen Neeyutnee.

Behind the scenes

Jamillia was portrayed by Ayesha Dharker in Attack of the Clones.

The name "Jamillia" and variants thereof, are common female names in Arabic, meaning "beautiful". In Attack of the Clones: The Visual Dictionary and some of the early scripts of Attack of the Clones, the transliteration "Jamilla" was used instead.[3] Her name also bears a resemblance to the Wookiee "Jommillia" from early drafts of Star Wars.
