Now, a bit of Star Wars trivia is making the rounds on the internet pertaining to Leia's qualifications when viewers met her in A New Hope.

Fans of the "Star Wars" character may have already known that besides having the "princess" title, Leia Organa ― played by Carrie Fisher ― earned a Senate position in the Galactic Empire and the rank of general in the later resistance.

The revelation was pointed out by Twitter user Becca Harrison, a University of Glasgow student, who discovered the news in the book Superwomen: Gender, Power, and Representation by Carolyn Cocca.

The book quotes Lucas as stating that Leia is 'young, nineteen, the same age as what Luke was supposed to be, but instead of being kind of an idealistic naïve farm boy from the far reaches of the netherlands, she's like a very sophisticated, urbanized ruler, a Senator, so she's a politician, she's accomplished, she's graduated, got her PhD at nineteen and she rules people and is in charge. She's an expert politician, a handsome princess, a powerful general, and now a well-educated woman.

Dr. Leia Organa will next be seen in Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will be released in theaters on December 15, 2017.

Written and directed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi stars Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Andy Serkis, Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran and Benicio del Toro.
