StarWars.com takes a look at the history of the Mandalorians, their world, conflicts and the infamous Mandalorian armour which was featured in Chapter 1 of The Mandalorian.
Mandalore is an Outer Rim planet that has been entirely ravaged by continuous war. Its society is divided into Houses and Clans, which frequently battled each other for power over the centuries. Its warmongering people also took the fight outside the confines of Mandalore; its fearsome fighters were even unafraid to take the Jedi head-on in ancient conflicts.
Centuries of battle changed the planet’s surface into a barren landscape. By the time of the Clone Wars, the endless deserts are dotted with domed cities with most of its populace living peacefully inside. Mandalore’s armored warriors were exiled to the moon of Concordia, presumed to have died out as the years passed.
As yet another civil war ended shortly before the rise of the Empire, the new ruler, Duchess Satine Kryze, focused on keeping the New Mandalorian government out of violent conflict at almost any cost.
