Jonashe Solo was a Corellian male who was a member of the ancient Corellian royalty and held the title of Prince-Admiral.[1]

In 13 BBY,[2] Han Solo told an Imperial recruitment officer that he did not have a family and as a result, the officer listed the new recruit as "Han Solo." However, according to one Snivvian bounty hunter, Han was a direct descendant of Jonashe Solo, and the story about how Han's last name was invented by the recruitment officer was deliberate disinformation. He also claimed the Hutt Cartel knew about it and they wanted Han back as the heir to the vacant throne of Corellia.[1] The bounty hunter's story was included in the bartender Tivoche Bilure's journal.[1]

  2. Solo: A Star Wars Story The Official Guide establishes that the events of Solo: A Star Wars Story begin nine years after the founding of the Galactic Empire. Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the Empire's founding to 19 BBY, meaning the events of Solo can be placed in 10 BBY. Because the prologue takes place three years prior, the prologue must take place in 13 BBY.
