The Great Jedi Purge, (also simply called The Purge and later known as Palpatine's Purge), referred to the efforts initiated by the Galactic Empire to eradicate the Jedi Order and later the Jedi Knights themselves. It resulted in the near-annihilation of the Jedi, as it had been with the First Jedi Purge that occurred after the Jedi Civil War in 1,956 BBY.
