"It's outrageous that after four trials in the Supreme Court, Nute Gunray is still the Viceroy of the Trade Federation."
Sio Bibble[3]

The Viceroy of the Trade Federation was the leader of the Trade Federation conglomerate. By the time of the organization's invasion of the planet Naboo[1] in 32 BBY,[4] the Sith Lord Darth Sidious had manipulated Nute Gunray's rise to the position. Gunray served as Viceroy of the Trade Federation during the invasion[5] and, despite facing several trials in the Supreme Court,[3] kept the title during the subsequent Clone Wars. The Viceroy was killed on Mustafar in 19 BBY by Sidious' new apprentice, Darth Vader.[4]

Behind the scenes[]

The Viceroy of the Trade Federation title first appeared through Nute Gunray in the 1999 film Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace, the first installment of the Star Wars prequel trilogy.[1]
