    I’ve been wondering if Luke and Leia ever knew about Padmes family that appeared in Revenge of the Sith and deleted scenes from Attack of the Clones.In legends Leia was friends with her cousin but in canon we barely know anything about them.

    Who knows? My guess is that the Emperor made sure something horrible happened to each of them, just to keep Darth Vader angry.

    I don't think Vader would care either way. The whole idea is that he's shut himself off from all human emotion after that last primal shout of despair after the end of Episode III. Padme's family would mean nothing to him.

    "That family no longer has any meaning for me...."

    We don't know. It's interesting to consider the fate of Naboo under the Imperial regime. As the Emperor's home planet it might have been held out as special and sort of sacred in Imperial ideology. We did get a special-special edition ending of Return of the Jedi where people cheer the fall of the Empire there, including a cheering Gungan who shouts "we-sa free" but seriously the Naboo probably had it easier than most once the Empire began. Padme's family on the other hand, I think they would have to have been knocked off in some clever way. That's my take on it. Of course, considering nothing was done to hunt out Anakin's stepfamily, The_Phantom_Calamari may have a point.

    Do they know Anakin and/or Vader killed her? Does the public? They can’t tell people she died in childbirth because that’s a secret, but technically they can tell the truth as far as “she lost the will to live”. You can’t really say that without bringing Anakin into it though so I’m not sure it would help if indeed Anakin’s involvement in her death is meant to be a secret.

    I don’t think they even knew if Padmé married Anakin. The two went out of their way to keep it all a secret.

    My guess is that they assumed Padmé died in childbirth and the plucky Jedi she was with either got killed during the Clone Wars or was a victim of the assault on the Jedi Temple.

    How did Bail Organa deliver Padems body anyways?I think the empire said she was killed by jedi but who did he give the body too and who did he tell?

    You are The Senate, surely you should know these things?

    They don’t need to know about the marriage to be told that Anakin/Vader killed her. And the childbirth is a secret so they most likely wouldn’t mention that either

    The public never learned about the true identity of Darth Vader. Apparently this comes up in one of the new post-Disney novels set after Return of the Jedi. I'm told another recent novel has Bail Organa putting the pieces together to seceretly conclude to his horror that Vader is actually Anakin.

    Whether people know Anakin and Vader are the same person is a different question than whether people know that either Anakin or Vader (probably Vader if Obi-wan has that information by this point) was the culprit.

    If you think about it, everyone including her family probably, thought she died unmarried and pregnant.=((

    I thought it was less "he put the pieces together" and more "Ben and Yoda told him, when they handed over Leia to him".

    I always assumed Obi Wan and friends found out right away and not via news broadcast.

    In Legends they survived and I think one even became the senator for Naboo during the same time Leia was. In Canon after Revenge of the Sith we have no clue

    they certainly should have. R2 obviously knew, and Obi- Wan would have filled luke in on who his mother was, offscreen ROTJ

    Alright I think I figured out why I was so confused by the replies. When I asked “do they know Anakin was behind Padme’s death?” I was referring to Padme’s family, since this the prequel forum and “Padme’s family” is the title of the thread. I see now that the OP’s question is framed from Luke and Leia’s perspective so people probably assumed that’s who I was referring to by “they”.

    I do know I'm just seeing how much the citizens of my Empire know.
