"My sister has informed me she has no wish to serve in my government, which didn't surprise me at all."
―Queen Padmé Amidala[2]

Sola Naberrie was a human female from the planet Naboo. A member of the Naberrie family, she was a daughter of Ruwee Naberrie and Jobal Naberrie, and the sister of Senator Padmé Amidala. Sola had a daughter of her own, Ryoo Naberrie, who was born during the last years of the Galactic Republic.


Sola Naberrie was the daughter of Ruwee Naberrie and his wife, Jobal Naberrie. Her sister was Padmé Amidala,[3] the senator of Naboo who secretly married[4] Jedi Knight[1] Anakin Skywalker during the Clone Wars.[4]

When she became queen, Padmé changed her last name to protect Sola and her other loved ones. Amidala participated in the speech of choosing to be the Queen of Naboo as a hologram to Sola.[2]

Prior to the conflict, Sola gave birth to Ryoo Naberrie[5] in 28 BBY.[source?]

Shortly before the Clone Wars, her sister and Skywalker visited them.[6]

The formation of the Galactic Empire was followed shortly after by the death of Amidala, who died giving birth to the twins Luke Skywalker and Leia Organa. Sola Naberrie was among the mourners who attended her sister's funeral in the city of Theed, and was accompanied by her parents, her daughter Ryoo, and Pooja Naberrie.[1]

Personality and traits[]

Sola Naberrie was a human female who had light skin.[1] Unlike her sister Padmé, who desired a relationship like the one their parents had, Sola was uninterested in having a partner, though she was comfortable with having children. This position was not uncommon on Naboo.[5]


Sola wore a dark burgundy outfit with golden details to her sister's funeral, an outfit that closely resembled Amidala's wardrobe as a tribute. The dark tones of the costume reflected the sadness of the family and their mourning of her death.[3]

Behind the scenes[]

Sola Naberrie was portrayed by Claudia Karvan.[7] She first appeared in a scene from Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones, but this scene was deleted and is not considered canon. She appears at the end of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith attending Padmé Amidala's funeral. The character's name is given in the film's closing credits.[1]

E. K. Johnston, the author of Queen's Shadow, confirmed that she intended Sola Naberrie to be both aromantic and asexual.[8]
