Glova was a semi-tropical planet in the Glova system colonized around 195 BBY. When its precious metals ran dry, its mines were abandoned, and the inhabitants turned to farming, becoming a leading supplier of food for planets in the region.
Around 4 ABY, the world was declared neutral and ruled by Governor Tegist Byrg. Following the Battle of Endor, the New Republic maintained an embassy on this planet. Ambassador Robet Makina organized a mission to capture the governor and reveal his connections with the Galactic Empire.
In 4 ABY, the New Republic's First Fleet, under the command of Admiral Firmus Nantz, drove the forces of Sander Delvardus from Glova, where New Republic General Tyr Taskeen led a ground attack with aid from Sullustan irregulars. The campaign at Glova limited Delvardus's influence by preventing his Eriadu Authority from joining with Imperial forces in the Elrood and Minos sectors.
