    I re-watched Episode III the other day and one line stuck with me. It is a line delivered by Palpatine after converting Anakin to the ways of the Sith.



    "Once more the Sith will rule the Galaxy!"

    And Mace Windu touches upon it again after disarming Palpatine.

    "The oppression of the Sith will never return. You have lost!"

    The point I'm getting at is, 'Once more' insinuates that the Sith ruled the Galaxy before Palpatine's Galactic Empire. This can easily be depicted in canon Old Republic material which has yet to be released or explored. In canon, the Sith were formed during the Hundred-Year Darkness. That much is known. What isn't known is when the Sith ruled the Galaxy.

    Was the Galaxy ruled by no one at one point, and then the Sith were the first to assume Galactic dominance as a federal, primary government? Then did the Jedi organize a Rebel alliance of sorts with the people of the Galaxy to destroy the Sith? The people eventually leading to the creation of the Galactic Republic and the Jedi having sworn allegiance to it?

    The Jedi Order and Republic clearly succeeded, otherwise the thousand-year peace, the 'Golden Age' of the Republic would not have existed.

    ''There hasn't been a full scale war since the formation of the Republic.'' - Ki-Adi Mundi

    Was the war with the Sith put to an abrupt stop because of Darth Bane wiping them out then forming the 'Rule of Two'?

    Ultimately, what do you guys think?

    This was a interesting scene, maybe the galaxy was leaderless before the OR.

    I wonder if we'll ever find out how much of the Old Republic stuff is canon. I'm sure a lot of the characters, even Revan, aren't, but was there even an Old Republic? Was there a big war with Mandalore? It's interesting stuff that would be easy enough to simply confirm as canon since it has little bearing on the current timelines.

    Well now we know there was a big war with the Sith and Jedi on Malachor, and that Darth Bane's plan did exist. That much is canon.

    We haven't gotten anything about a Mandalore-Sith alliance....like, zero references in the Maul-Vizla plot episodes so that much isn't canon.

    Maybe we'll get something on Saturday with Sabine and her story....can't wait!!!!

    The Sith Empire did exist and rule under Vitiate back in the old republic era but that's not canon. But I see no reason why it would not fit into the canon.

    But one thing I have a hard time believing is when George Lucas once said in an interview that Sidious was the most powerful sith lord of all time. Now in canon that's true, but if you are someone who adopts the EU as your own canon than it's hard to deny Vitiate's superiority over Sidious. Sidious in my mind is the 2nd most powerful sith. When I hear that line you mention I think of the sith empire (post hyperspace war) and the dominion it held over regions of the galaxy and how Vitiate terrorized the republic

    Prior to the Old Republic, numerous Sith ruled the galaxy with a cruel and tyrannical regime. The Jedi took advantage of in-fighting among Sith to overthrow them and create the Old Republic. The Jedi believed the Sith were extinct, but Darth Bane survived and created the rule of two to decrease in-fighting. The overthrowing of the Sith is the reason the Sith want revenge, and their desire for revenge is mentioned as early as TPM.

    I don't know if there's any official answer what, if anything, existed before the original rule of the Sith. It is also unclear how Snoke fits into any of this.
