Related to this other question, it's pointed that Padmé says:

Padme: I wasn't the youngest queen ever elected, but now that I think back on it, I'm not sure I was old enough. I'm not sure I was ready...

Is there any sources of who was / what age was, the youngest queen ever elected in Naboo?

If (AFAIK) Padme was 14 years old in The Phantom Menace, I wonder how old was this other mini-queen...

According to the Star Wars Character Encyclopedia, the queen who indirectly succeeded Padmé (Apailana) was aged just 12 at the time of her accession. It describes her as being one of the youngest of all time, suggesting that the others were historic and presumably not notably younger.

Although this doesn't confirm who the other young queens were, it does at least set a lower bound on the ages involved.

    A 12-year-old who looks like she's 20. Of course... 'cuz casting. At least in Episode I you could squint and pretend that Natalie Portman was maybe 16.

This is unknown, either in canon or legends.


As mentioned in my answer to a related question, there are only 4 Queens identified in canon, of whom Padmé is the earliest. We have no knowledge of any preceding Queens, let alone their ages.


Prior to Padmé, there were four identified Queens, but none of them had known ages. In fact, three of them don't even have names.
