How Did the Empire EXPLAIN Padmé Amidala's Death? | Top 10 Lore
Padmé Amidala, having been Force choked by her loving husband, famously died of a broken heart – which is actually a real thing. Like, no joke... Look it up! However, a broken heart wasn't quite going to cut it as far as the Galactic Empire was concerned. Welcome to today's edition of Top 10 Lore, in which we'll be uncovering the official explanation for Padmé's death, the exact retirement weight of Captain Rex, whom the Boonta Eve Classic was named after, and much, much more. Let's do this!
What did Endor and Dagobah have in common? Well, they both possessed 8% surface water.
During the Second Battle of Geonosis, Ki-Adi-Mundi destroyed more battle droids, with 65, than both Anakin Skywalker and Ahsoka Tano – either killed around 55 and 60 respectively.
Kaminoan eyes allowed the species to see ultraviolet light.
It's never a good idea to question women about their weight. But Captain Rex is a man, so it's all good! Anyway, the former Clone Captain came in at 245 lbs during his retirement. To put this into context, Saw Gerrera weighed 315 lbs... With gear!
Discarded lava flea shells – this was what the armour of Southern Mustafarians was recycled from.
The cargo capacity of AT-ACT walkers was 550 cubic metres.
The luxury resort suite where Leia, Han and Chewbacca find themselves upon arrival in Cloud City cost 5,000 Imperial credits per night.
It's a rather common misconception that Yoda was exactly 900-years-old when he died. But in actual fact, he was 896.
The annual Boonta Eve Classic, which Anakin Skywalker famously won in 32 BBY, was named in honour of Boonta Hestilic Shad'ruu... Try saying that ten times fast!
And, last but not least...
The Galactic Empire covered up Padmé Amidala's death by blaming the Jedi. Thankfully, many disbelieved this official story.
That's going to be it for yet another episode of Top 10 Lore. Let me know in the comments below which fact intrigued you the most!
