[U.S.A.], August 6 (ANI): If you think that you know everything about Princess Leia, then this fact about her will really surprise you.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, not only did Princess Leia have a Ph.D., but also she earned it at 19.

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.

According to Cocca, George Lucas said in the 2004 commentary for A New Hope that Leia obtained her doctorate, among other accolades, while Luke was a "naive farm boy."

"She's like a very sophisticated, urbanized ruler, a senator, so she's a politician.She's accomplished, graduated, got her Ph.D. at 19 and she rules people," said Lucas, according to the book.

The discovery was so popular, even Twitter pointed it out in a Moments collection.
