Boss Gallo was a Gungan warlord who lived on the planet Naboo millennia before the Imperial Era. At the time, the Gungan tribes were constantly at war with each other, until Gallo[1] dominated the Gungan cities[2] and united them under a single banner using diplomatic and military tactics.[1]

Gallo rallied a massive army to destroy the ancient fortress city Spearhead, the home of the rogue Boss Rogoe and the remaining holdouts against Gallo's united Gungans. Gallo then had a new Gungan capital called Otoh Gunga built on top of Spearhead, with the original foundations laid by Gallo becoming known as the Ancient Quarter.[1]
