"This lightsaber was stolen from your Jedi Temple by my ancestors during the fall of the Old Republic. Since then many Jedi have died upon its blade. Prepare yourself to join them!"
―Pre Vizsla to Obi-Wan Kenobi — (audio) Listen (file info)[src]

The fall of the Old Republic described a long period of time in which the Old Republic, the reigning galactic government of the era, slowly declined in its power. Eventually, when the Old Republic had all but collapsed, the galaxy entered a dark age, which ended in what was believed to be the final defeat of the Sith and the reorganization of the Republic.

History[edit | edit source]

Sometime after the Jedi Order had begun its conflict against the Mandalorians,[1] the Old Republic continued to fend off the onslaught of the Sith, who slowly began gaining the upper hand.[3]

During one of the wars that the Old Republic faced in the period of its fall, a Mandalorian of House Vizsla stole the Darksaber from the Jedi Temple on Coruscant.[1]

Eventually, both the Jedi and the remnants of the fallen Old Republic managed to reorganize their forces and fight back against the Sith. The Republic emerged victorious from the war, managing to recapture Coruscant from the Sith who occupied the capital.[3] The war ended with the Sith Order's defeat, with all but one Dark Lord dead.[8] After 1032 BBY the crumbled Old Republic, now having brought peace to the galaxy, reorganized itself, resulting in the establishment of the modern Galactic Republic.[3]
