Eirtaé was a female human who was part of Queen Amidala's retinue of handmaidens.


Early lifeEdit

Eirtaé was born on Naboo prior to the Invasion of Naboo.[1] In 32 BBY she joined the Naboo Royal Handmaidens when Padmé Amidala was elected as the Queen of Naboo. After swearing her loyalty and life to Amidala, she along with the other handmaidens changed their name to reflect Amidala's and bind themselves to one another, as well as for privacy and a bit of prestige.[2]

Naboo CrisisEdit

In 32 BBY,[3] Eirtae was on Naboo when the planet was invaded by the Trade Federation. After queen Padmé Amidala was captured, Viceroy Nute Gunray told Amidala that he was going to force her to sign a treaty to make the Federation's invasion legal. After Amidala refused to cooperate, Amidala, Governor Sio Bibble, the Naboo Security Forces and the handmaidens were to be taken by B1 battle droids to Camp Four. As they made their way to the camp, Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn and his Padawan, Obi-Wan Kenobi rushed in and saved the group and they fled to the transports so that they could go to Coruscant Amidala could plea her case to the Senate. After a brief stop on Coruscant, Amidala decided to go to Naboo and free her people herself. She went to the Gungans and begged for their help. The Gungan leader, Boss Nass, agreed to help. Later, after planning the liberation, they made their way into the Theed palace. Inside, they ran into Darth Maul and they agreed to let Jinn deal with them while they fight the Federation droids. After the battle, Eirtae attended Jinn's funeral, who had been killed by Maul during the battle. Eirtae also attended the celebration of the liberation of Naboo shortly after.[1]

New lifeEdit

Eventually, Eirtaé left Amidala's service following the Queen's last term as monarch, and moved to Otoh Gunga to pursue her love of art.[2]

Personality and TraitsEdit

Contrarily to all the other handmaidens and to the Queen herself, she had blond hair and blue eyes. She also had fair skin.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

Eirtaé was portrayed by Friday "Liz" Wilson in The Phantom Menace.[1]
