Is it accurate to say that the Emperor could be addressed as "your highness"? In the real world that style is for monarchs of much lower rank and the only time I recall Palpatine being called Highness is Luke's sarcasm in Ep. 6 and I wouldn't expect a farm boy like Luke to know proper monarchy styles, especially if he was being sarcastic.

  • That mistake is quite common in Star Wars though, but I think it's because of the writing—i.e. not an "in-universe" mistake. If you remember, several characters address Amidala as "Your Highness" too in Episode I, although it would be improper in real life. --LelalMekha (talk) 10:42, September 2, 2015 (UTC)
    • True. I almost forgot about that. Only Palpatine called Amidala by the proper style of "your majesty." GreenDragonRanger (talk) 02:12, September 8, 2015 (UTC)

Dissolved or notEdit

I was under the impression that the position of Galactic Emperor was effectively dissolved after the death of Gallius Rax. However, the article was recently updated stating that Amedda was still officially a proxy Emperor, despite being placed under house arrest. This information is sourced to Life Debt, although I don't recall reading this in the novel. But if that is indeed the case, then was Mas Amedda still technically the Emperor by the end of Empire's End, and is that position a ceremonial office now? Empire's End states that Amedda was reduced to being little more than a figurehead, but I don't recall any mention of him still being Emperor, or if that position still exists after the Empire's fall.
