- "We will leave as soon as Queen Neeyutnee's banquet is over."
- ―Palpatine to Anakin Skywalker, marching towards the Banquet Hall
The Theed Palace Banquet Hall was a vaulted room for the purpose of hosting an official reception in the Royal Palace of the people of Naboo, in the city of Theed. A set of tapestries displayed in the Banquet Hall depicted the hisrory of the Naboo, from the crash of the colony ship Beneficent Tasia, to a nomadic tribe arriving at the Dee'ja Peak, and on to the growing prosperity of Theed. The Banquet Hall also contained a statue over five meters high depicting a Queen of Naboo holding a globe and a scepter in her hands.
At some point during the Clone Wars, the leader of the Separatist Alliance, Count Dooku of Serenno, awaited the Supreme Chancellor of the Galactic Republic Palpatine and his Jedi bodyguard Anakin Skywalker in an ambush. Unbeknownst to the Jedi, the trap had been secretly arranged by the Chancellor, who concealed his appartenance to the malevolent Order of the Sith Lords. At the time, the room contained one large table bordered by twenty-one chairs, one of which was placed at the top end of the table.

- ↑ A concept artwork of the statue shows that it is three times as high as a clone trooper of the Galactic Republic. According to Star Wars: The Clone Wars Character Encyclopedia, the clone troopers all measured 1.83 meters. The height of the statue can be obtained by multiplying that of a standard clone trooper by three, which gives 5.49 meters.
