"Kings not only like to collect, they like to boast about their collections."
Han Solo[9]

A king was the male ruler of a monarchy who normally inherited his position by right of birth and ruled for life.[10] A female of equivalent status was referred to as a queen.[11] Planets such as Mon Cala,[12] Onderon,[13] and Toydaria were ruled over by kings.[14] In some cases, including that of Naboo, the king or queen was elected by his or her subjects and could only stay in place for a specified period.[15]


"Our true king has been silenced. The one you recognize is a traitor and a Separatist minion."
Saw Gerrera[16]

During the Galactic Civil War, the planet Shu-Torun was ruled by a king, until he was murdered by Darth Vader's assassin droids, BT-1 and 0-0-0. The Sith Lord subsequently put the late monarch's third child, Princess Trios, on the throne.[3]
