Breha Organa, born Breha Antilles, was a female Human who was the Queen and Minister of Education of Alderaan at the time of the Galactic Empire’s formation. She was the wife of Prince Bail Organa, Viceroy and First Chairman of the Alderaan system. The couple longed for a child for many years, but Queen Breha suffered multiple miscarriages that put her own life at risk. Eventually, the Organas adopted the baby girl of the late Senator Amidala after the end of the Clone Wars, bent on raising her as their own daughter, the Princess Leia Organa. In the early days of the Galactic Empire, the Queen’s family helped to build a rebellion against that authoritary government. Breha Organa later perished when the Empire disintegrated Alderaan into dust with the superlaser of their brand new Death Star battlestation. Years after her passing, she was remembered as a loving mother, and a simple mention of her past authority would still awaken the sense of patriotism in the Alderaanians.
