"Before the outbreak of war, the twilight of the Republic was an era of distractions, with citizens from all walks of life following escapist pursuits. Historians rebuke the people of this last age for being taken in by such circuses when their attentions should have been focused on the malfeasances and corruption in the Senate and other governing institutions."

The Republic Era,[11] also known as the Twilight of the Republic,[4] the Twilight of the Old Republic,[12] the era of the Republic,[13] or the Great Peace,[1] referred to the state of the galaxy that predated the Fall of the Galactic Republic.[4]


One of the major events of the Republic era was that Padmé Amidala was elected Queen and ruled as Monarch of Naboo.[4]

It was characterized by the lack of galaxy-spanning wars although smaller sector and system conflicts, such as the Stark Hyperspace War or the Mandalorian Civil War, consumed the time and energy of the Galactic Republic and Jedi Order.[1] It was remembered by New Republic period historians as the last era of peace in galactic history.[4]

The Great Peace began at the end of the Jedi-Sith War, when the Sith were believed to have been defeated by the Jedi Order, and the Old Republic was reformed into the Galactic Republic. During this time, the Jedi Order enjoyed political ascension, constructing a new academy on Coruscant to train Jedi younglings in the way of the Force.[1]

The First Battle of Geonosis marked the end of the Great Peace and the beginning of the Clone Wars; having mobilized a clone army to serve as its new military, the Republic went to war against the Confederacy of Independent Systems, led by the former Jedi-turned-Sith Lord Count Dooku. The Sith had not completely died out at the end of their war with the Jedi, and had been plotting for centuries to overthrow the Jedi and the Republic.[1]
