History

Theed at dusk in 19 BBY.

Early in Theed's history, the city was just one of Naboo's many city-states. Around 1,000 BBY, the city, along with the others scattered around the planet, was engulfed in a long and difficult civil war. It was not until the rule of King Jafan of Theed that the conflict ended and Naboo was united under Jafan, with Theed as the planetary capital.

The city's famous unified and harmonious architectural style was the result of strict planning regimes and extensive rebuilding after the upheavals of the ancient past. Its sophisticated culture has produced many able and admired galactic politicians, including Senator Palpatine, whose study and early career were based in Theed.

Naboo Crisis

Theed is occupied by the Trade Federation.

The city was briefly taken over by the Trade Federation in 32 BBY, but freed along with the rest of Naboo after the Invasion of Naboo. During Trade Federation occupation, much damage was caused to the city, resulting in the construction of various new features upon the planet's liberation.

Imperial era

Inhabitants celebrate the death of Emperor Palpatine.

A battle erupted in the city in 18 BBY, when the Naboo Security Force and several Gungans attacked the Imperial garrison in the city, bent on stopping Inquisitor Malorum from learning the secret of the birth of Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa Solo. Ultimately, it was ex-Jedi Ferus Olin who confronted Malorum and killed him, resulting in the retreat and destruction of the Imperial squadron. Afterwards, the Theed hangar, being used by the Imperials to store illegal explosives, was destroyed by Olin; consequently, Naboo escaped serious punishment by the Empire, who didn't wish to draw attention to the fact that they were breaking the law.

Another battle occurred later that year when the Imperial 501st Legion invaded the city, intent on eliminating Queen Apailana and several fugitive Jedi her court had been harboring. The Queen and the Jedi were all killed and Queen Kylantha became the new monarch, meant to better serve Imperial interests.

Theed remained the capital of Naboo even during the Galactic Civil War, and was wrested from Imperial control after the Battle of Endor in 4 ABY.

Behind the scenes

Theed's exotic appearance is drawn from Venice, the Byzantine architecture of Greek churches, Istanbul, with its "suave melody of gentle forms," and the sprawling horizontals of Frank Lloyd Wright's Marin County Civic Center, which is also the source of Theed's color. There is also a town in the game Earthbound, called Threed.
