Mace Windu

Mace Windu, Master of the Order until the Clone Wars.

Master of the Order was a title used to denote the highest-ranking member of the Jedi High Council during the last decades of the Old Republic, and was also used by the New Jedi Order. It was apparently separate from the title of Grand Master, which was used for the leader of the entire Order rather than just the High Council.


Jedi Master Mace Windu held the title until after the Battle of Geonosis. After he joined the rest of the Order in military positions during the Clone Wars, he gave the title to Jedi Grand Master Yoda, who remained on Coruscant to serve as Supreme Chancellor Palpatine's chief military adviser.[1] Kenth Hamner was appointed Master of the Order following Grand Master Luke Skywalker's exile in 43 ABY.[2]

Behind the scenesEdit

The title "Master of the Order" first appeared in The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia, but it is unclear if this was meant to be a separate title or another term for Grand Master.

Jedi Master Kol Skywalker was described as being the leader of the Jedi Council in Star Wars Legacy 0½; this would seem to imply that he also held the title of Master of the Order.
