Summary
The Battle of Coruscant, also known as the First Battle of Coruscant, was a crucial Clone Wars battle in 19 BBY. Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, knowing the Jedi were close to discovering his alter ego, Sith Lord Darth Sidious, ordered General Grievous, leader of the Military of the Confederacy of Independent Systems, to kidnap him. Separatists fleet swept into the system and catching the Republic Coruscant Defense Fleet completely by surprise. The Confederate Navy hammered the few defending warships, destroying them, before assaulting the planet itself.
Meanwhile, Grievous, along with his MagnaGuard droid elite, used the battle above as a distraction, and landed on the planet, fighting their way towards Palpatine's bunker, as several Jedi and dozens of clone troopers protecting the Chancellor were killed. Grievous succeeded in capturing Palpatine, before fleeing to his flagship in orbit, the Invisible Hand.
However, the fleet was unable to leave, as Republic reinforcements had arrived and trapped the Separatists. The two fleets engaged each other, firing volleys back and forth. Jedi Generals Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker arrived at the battle. They boarded the Invisible Hand, made their way to the bridge, where Palpatine was being held. Before the Jedi could rescue Palpatine, Count Dooku arrived with an escort of two super battle droids. After a brief duel, Skywalker killed Dooku at Palpatine's behest. The duo, along with the now-freed Palpatine, were captured by General Grievous before they could make their escape. Skywalker and Kenobi were able to defeat his MagnaGuards, forcing the General to flee. With the loss of the flagship, the Separatist fleet retreated, having suffered heavy losses. Chancellor Palpatine was safe in Republic hands.
