The Naberrie family was a human family that became prominent in politics and public service on their home planet of Naboo during the last years of the Galactic Republic. Despite their modest background, the family rose to prominence through the accession of Padmé Naberrie, who became known as Queen Amidala during her reign as the the elected monarch of Naboo. Amidala was the daughter of humble parents, Ruwee and Jobal Naberrie, as well as the sister of Sola Naberrie. Ryoo and Pooja Naberrie were also members of the Naberrie family.
After liberating the people of Naboo from the battle droid army of the Trade Federation—an interstellar shipping and trade conglomerate that occupied Amidala's homeworld shortly after her election by the year 32 BBY—Amidala served two full terms before stepping down from the throne due to the constitutional limit on her time in office. However, public support for her reign was widespread to the extent that some considered amending the constitution in order to keep Amidala in power. At the request of her successor, Queen Jamillia, Amidala became a galactic senator, representing the interests of the Royal House of Naboo in the Galactic Senate of the Republic.
During the Separatist Crisis, Amidala grew closer to the Jedi Padawan Anakin Skywalker, although she was concerned that their relationship would scandalize her career and result in Skywalker's expulsion from the Jedi Order due to the Jedi Code's stance on personal attachment. Despite her reservations, Amidala married Skywalker in secret shortly after the start of the Clone Wars in 22 BBY. The union between Amidala and Skywalker ultimately led to the birth of their children, the twins Luke Skywalker and Leia Amidala Skywalker, by the war's end in 19 BBY. By then, Skywalker had turned to the dark side of the Force, becoming the Sith Lord Darth Vader, which resulted in Amidala's death in childbirth due to a broken heart. A funeral was held in Theed, the capital city of Naboo, where the people mourned over the loss of their former sovereign. The Naberrie family was among those who paid their respects to the former queen.
