Okey so, in the movie Phantom Menace Anakin seems like a 11-12 years old whereas Padme is obviously somewhere around 20.Then in Clone Wars they both look around 20s where Anakin is about 10 years older and Padme is the same.According to wookiepedia Anakin is like 5 years older than Padme.Is it that Anakin really younger in Phantom Menace or Padme seems older.Someone can explain me why Anakin seems so young despite being older than Padme ?

They are not that far apart in age, and Padme in TPM was 14 I believe and Anakin was..either 9 or 10. I don't really see a big deal with this at all, people can fall in love at different age ranges why does everyone think its impossible?

Assumingly in the late story, Luke was in his 20s and Padme at 25. She wouldnt of change much.

In reallity, ppl dont change much from 20-30.

But they do from puberty to full masculinity.

The people of Naboo are weird choosing a 14 year old to rule them.

She was a Queen no? (in favour of...democracy) I don't know if Naboo had much of a choice in the matter.


Then again the Star Wars universe is a weird place. Could have been worse, she could have been a slug ruling them

She was a Queen.
But, apparently the title Queen is for their elected ruler, which is always female and between 14-19 years old.

Yea she got elected young so she was probably no older than 5 years than Anakin. I do not even think she was the youngest to ever be elected to her office.

People in real life in history have also chosen young kids as kings/leaders so I don't see what's the big deal.

I heard that before too, but in the novel Plageuis they talk about the kings before her, all male and adult.

She was chosen because the people wanted to have an innocent Queen, the King she defeated in election was corrupt.
