Emperor Palpatine’s first name revealed…

October 16th, 2014 by Marc 1 Comment

While it’s not exactly shrouded in the sort of mystery that the name of the Doctor is, Palpatine’s first name is something that we at FTN have often wondered about…

Well, wonder no more.

Our buddies at The Star Wars Underworld report: “A few days ago at the ‘A New Dawn’ panel at New York Comic Con, it was revealed that the upcoming novel Tarkin, written by James Luceno, will finally reveal Palpatine’s first name. Earlier today the Star Wars Wikia Wookieepedia updated their article on Palpatine with the new name and listed page 93 of Tarkin as their source. (Obviously one of their editors got an advanced copy of the novel.)”

This may be considered a spoiler…

but we don’t think it really is…

His full name is Sheev Palpatine.

So there you have it. As old mysteries go, it does feel a little underwhelming but at least we know now, right? Right.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
