How many lightsabers did Palpatine have? We see him with two in the Lawless and two in ROTS. However, the two in the Lawless don't seem to be the same as the ones in ROTS. The sabres in Lawless seem identical to the first lightsaber Palpatine used in ROTS. However, Palpatine's second lightsaber in ROTS is a black version of his first blade. This doesn't seem to jive with continuity, as the two blades in Lawless were identical. Did Palpatine have three sabres, perhaps? The two gold and silver ones as seen in Lawless and ROTS, and a black backup blade in ROTS. I suppose it's possible that Palpatine decided to paint one of his silver lightsabers black after he finish dealing with Maul and Savage, but why would he do that? Any thoughts on the many lightsabers of Darth Sidious?
