Denon was at the confluence of the Hydian Way and the Corellian Run. Denon was a heavily-populated world that rose to prominence during the rule of the Galactic Republic. In terms of being an ecumenopolis, it was second only to Coruscant.
Old Republic eraEdit
- "We were holding territory on Denon. Locals rioted, and orders were to open fire until they stopped. None of us even wanted to be there.. massacring civilians? That's not how Zakuul is supposed to operate."
- ―Koth Vortena
During the Great Sith War, the planet was the site of a battle won by the Republic. The Galactic Republic was once again victorious at Denon during the Jedi Civil War. During the Galactic War, Denon exosphere was the site of skirmishes between Republic and Sith forces. Several years later, during the Eternal Empire campaign of conquest of the galaxy, Denon was invaded and occupied. Riots soon erupted in the population and Captain Koth Vortena and his troops were ordered to fire on civilians. Millennia later, Denon was successfully defended by the Jedi during the New Sith Wars. Not long after the millennium long war, Denon became the most important world in the galaxy after Coruscant.
During the final decades of the Galactic Republic, investors from Denon and the nearby planet Ardru created the Denon-Ardru Mutual, a powerful mining and refinery corporation known for its tyrannical methods. Denon was where Zam Wesell trained to become an assassin, and was the location of a murder trial against Doctor Evazan, though he ultimately escaped from the courtroom.
Galactic Civil WarEdit
A New Republic stronghold during the Yuuzhan Vong War, Denon was not attacked by the invaders. The planet was later adopted as the temporary capital of the Galactic Alliance following the resolution of the war in 29 ABY. Denon was chosen as the new galactic headquarters due to the fact that it had escaped the Yuuzhan Vong invasion unscathed, and thanks to its proximity to the Core Worlds. By 30 ABY, Coruscant had become the galactic capital once more.
