Biography

The monarch during the Galactic Civil War, Kylantha was outwardly loyal to the Galactic Empire, but had implemented few changes to Naboo's democratic government—as had happened on other Imperial-held worlds—leading many to believe she was actually a Rebel Alliance sympathizer. Kylantha's personal view towards the Empire remained ambiguous.

She also issued an order to investigate the mysterious death of the late Queen Apailana, which still remained unsolved. However, Kylantha came to believe that the assassination was related to the Empire.

During her reign, Kylantha appointed Pooja Naberrie, the younger niece of the beloved Naboo politician Padmé Amidala, as Naboo's representative in the Imperial Senate, a position Naberrie held until Emperor Palpatine dissolved that governmental body in 0 BBY. Kylantha also utilized Teckla Minnau, a loyal servant of the deceased Amidala, as one of her handmaidens.

Unlike previous monarchs, Kylantha had exceeded her two terms of office by the time of the Battle of Yavin, but showed little inclination to voluntarily stepping down. Fortunately for Kylantha, her personal popularity and official public support for the status quo meant there was little pressure for her to do so.

At some point during her reign, she asked a favor of a spacer to find and free two Wookiee slaves from enslavement in an Imperial Prison Facility on the planet Dathomir. Eventually, upon the Wookiees' liberation and escape, the Queen awarded the spacer with a rebuilt ARC-170 starfighter. Shortly after, she invited the Ewok Chief Chirpa and his tribe to come to Naboo during their Festival of Love.

At one point it was also said that a young and wealthy suitor, in an attempt to win her heart in marriage, purchased a quadrant of the Naboo system. However, Kylantha politely refused his offer, saying that she had "married" her people and wished to serve them with all her time. Heartbroken, the suitor renamed the quadrant "Kylantha's Whim."

Behind the scenes

Kylantha is a Non-Player Character in the MMORPG Star Wars Galaxies. Rebel players can take a quest from her where they rescue Wookiee slaves. They receive an ARC-170 starfighter as a reward.

The Queen's loyalties seem to be rather ambiguous. Outwardly, she was supportive of the Empire, but inwardly she appeared to be sympathetic to the Rebellion. Indeed, Emperor Palpatine saw to it that the Queen remained loyal to the Empire by making it appear as if the Rebellion were performing unethical acts.

Rosilé Kylantha, born Rosilé Excenil, was monarch of Naboo during the time of the Galatic Empire. A member of the Excenil family, which was favored by Palpatine, she was placed on the throne as a puppet ruler after the assassination of Queen Apailana.

Though out of necessity complaint to the Empire, Kylantha managed to more or less preserve Naboo's democratic structures, though she did remain on the throne even after the normal eight-year period was up. At that point, however, her popularity with the Naboo people was such that this was accepted. Their biggest criticism of her was, in fact, that she had no handmaidens.

That popularity began to wane in later years, as dislike of the Empire increased. Though during the initial uprising on Naboo of 4 ABY, she aided by shutting Moff Tronil Excenil out of the palace, she claimed to do it for everyone else's protection, and afterwards allowed him to retake Theed, despite his having condemned her for treason. Finding no support on either side, she fled Theed. Deciding she wanted the Empire off the planet, Kylantha secretly sent two ambassadors to the Rebel Alliance with a plea for help. In response, a force of ships led by General Sabé Andierre invaded and liberated Naboo. Kylantha came out of hiding to help Andierre corner the leader of the stormtroopers and force his surrender. She then immediately stepped down from the throne.
