    What was the reason that Viceroy Gunray and the separatists leaders were trying to kill Padme?

    It doesn't seem to make sense. She was leading an opposition to prevent the creation of an army for the Republic, which would be great to the Separatists, because they would have no one to oppose their droid army...

    Instead of supporting Padme, they are eager to kill her. Why? What's their motivation? What's their goal?

    Is it just revenge for her victory in the battle for Naboo, or is it something else?

    The master mind behind it wasn't the separatists.
    Sidious wanted the clone army.

    The separatists had a terrible strategy, since they completely bought Dooku's ideas that were bad to them.

    Nute wanted to kill Padme because she humiliated him for tricking him and then getting him in trouble. Palpatine and Dooku used it to prompt the Senate into giving Palpatine Emergency Powers so that he could start the war.

    I think Sidious wanted her dead not the CIS.
