Peladon of Peladon (PROSE: Legacy) was the king of Peladon in the 39th century, when it was admitted to the Galactic Federation. He met and befriended the Third Doctor and Jo Grant in the final stages of establishing ties to the Federation.

Biography

Peladon was the son of King Kellian and the human Ellua, Princess of Europa. His father gave him the name "Peladon of Peladon" because it seemed to have "great flair and flourish", and would impressively announce his son on other worlds. (PROSE: Legacy) When his father died, the boy king refused to take the throne, but the royal advisors Torbis and Hepesh convinced him to, and his mother allowed it.
