I have been trying to find who took over the Naboo seat after Padmé died during RoTS. I have found information on who was there before her from the Queen's Shadow book.

And I know in Legends it was eventually taken over by her niece but I can't find anything on who was the senator right after her death in either of the canons for that matter. I am assuming Jar-Jar had to assume some responsibilities for some time.

Was he left there and promoted from just a representative to full fledged senator? Or was someone else eventually sent?

    It was Jar Jar Binks followed by Pooja Naberrie according to the Star Wars Encyclopedia. I don't think there's a canon confirmation of who came after Padmé, nor that Jar Jar became the full Senator.

    "While the two scripts are similar, small variances differentiate the Royal Script from the Naboo Futhark, a fact made eminently clear when Senator Binks of Naboo famously misinterpreted the name of the Palazzo's Heroine Hall as "Hero in Hell" during Queen Apailana's state visit to the world. - Hyperspace Article: The Written Word, etc

1 Answer 1


In the (canon) book The Legends of Luke Skywalker, it is confirmed that Jar Jar became the Senator of Naboo.

"Speaking of Naboo sardine fritters, did you know that Senator Jar Jar Binks and Lord Vader were the same person?"

  • Notably, this book is a "collection of myths and tall-tales about the legendary Jedi Luke Skywalker". All of the narrators are fairly unreliable.

  • Yes, but currently this is the best we have to go on in canon. Aug 21, 2020 at 22:05
  • I don't disagree, but a little bit of a warning/disclaimer probably would have been useful.
