even dooku told anakin the truth nether anakin or jedi order would not believe him since they have no proof that sith named darth sidious even exists.


also all other points are against dooku since he is the one who kidnapped palpatine (if palpatine was sidious why would he order his own apprentice to kidnap him)

actually reading the books Dooku's fall was in the works for many years, he was never meant to be a Sith Lord, just a Dark Jedi used by the true Sith, but when Maul died he was the only one left until Sidious could find a real apprentice, he always planned to throw him away.

Dooku was a Sith Lord...

And, if you remember or if I remember correctly, in the AoTC movie, when Obi is captured and Dooku italks about Sidious and Obi refuses to believe it. Its when Obi was captured.

Its a little scene. I don't own the movie anymore but I remember it.
Just saw this response, as well as the ones from Burek and undeadsithdread, just now. Thanks for the answers guys.

With what we've learned here, it appears that Sidious was even more insidious (get it?) than I originally thought.

From a story point of view, there is no reason the story would require Dooku to know that Sidious was the chancellor. If I remember correctly, the only times we ever see Sidious contact Dooku are by holocomm. So if they never met in person, then it's perfectly possible that Dooku could go on just fine commanding the Separatists, receiving orders from Sidious to kidnap Palpatine on Coruscant, without realizing that Sidious was Palpatine.
Well, there is that time at the end of Ep. 2 when Sidious says to him something like "Good lord Tyranus". But the look on Dooku's face does show that he knew that Sidious was Palpatine.

Isn't there a deleted scene for RotS that covers Dooku knowing Palps / Sidious are the same or am I just really vividly remembering the Revenge of the Sith novelisation?

They were in the war together, playing both sides against the other just as Plagueis and Sidious did for one purpose > bring down the Jedi.

Dooku was a Sith but that would have only been to commit him to the cause until Anakin could take his place. Think about it logically, Dooku was too old to be a long term plan. Sidious even says as much at the end of the Plagueis novel.

Sidious was giddy on the thought of the Force's reaction to he and Plagueis trying to create life being turned into a Sith itself.

Oh, and Dooku was a Sith from the beginning, darthtyranus.com was registered by Lucasarts prior to Attack of the Clones being released.

None of it makes sense because Lucas's own writing makes zero sense.

That's why you have to ask questions like this.
