Emperor Palpatine appears in 392 issues.
Palpatine was the leader of the Confederacy despite the fact he was also the leader of the Republic. It was through these situations that Palpatine was able to manipulate the war to put him on the throne of a new Empire.
Palpatine was the founder of the Empire and remained Emperor for many years. He ruled by fear but his cunning allowed his many loyal followers.
During the crisis brought on by the attack of the Trade Federation against the planet of Naboo Palpatine was able to manipulate himself to become the Supreme Chancellor of the Republic Senate. He used this position to manipulate the entire war in order to start a new Empire.
Palpatine was originally the ambassador for Naboo and was made Supreme Chancellor during the Trade Federation blockade. He later used this position to gain emergency powers after the Confederacy of Independent Systems were shown to have an expansive droid army. Despite the fact that he was meant to give up the powers after a short time he managed to keep them until he founded the Empire. For a long time he kept the Senate intact until he felt comfortable that he could destroy it without serious repercussions in loyalty.
Emperor Palpatine is the more well-known name of the Sith Lord known as Darth Sidious. Originally a student of Darth Plagueis the Wise who had the power to bring others back from the dead. However, he was unable to save himself when Sidious betrayed his master and killed him in his sleep. Sidious then became the last Sith Lord before the fall of the Old Republic, having such apprentices as Darth Maul, Darth Tyranus and Darth Vader. Then it was that he created the Galactic Empire and became the politician Emperor Palpatine. He was vastly aged after a fight with Mace Windu in his prime and so during his time as Emperor he was more accustomed to using Force lightning instead of a lightsaber. He is considered one of the greatest Sith but was killed by his last apprentice, his creation, Darth Vader.
