Gardulla Besadii, better known as Gardulla the Hutt, was a female Hutt crime lord that controlled Tatooine. Excessive gambling would continually mar her long life with failure and defeat. Gardulla the Elder was the mother of Gardulla the Younger and Decca.
Gardulla Besadii was born in 650 BBY on the Hutt homeworld of Nal Hutta, and indulged herself into the family's criminal business at an early age. Gardulla's criminal activities flourished during the golden age of her rule, in which her use of slavery would seem to have granted her great fortune, although it caused numerous conflicts between her and the more powerful Jabba Desilijic Tiure. At times, she resorted to a partnership with Jabba, who would become her greatest rival, after she lost her entire fortune on gambling. Gardulla, however, would still maintain power over her slave trade franchise.
The Republic soon outlawed slavery in the Outer Rim Terrorities, as soon as the two Hutts' agreement was reached; Gardulla was to be sentenced to life in prison. Eventually, though, she escaped and returned to Tatooine, where she would control her failing criminal empire.
