New Hoth is considered the last great city to be built during the Third Era. After the Central War and the destruction of Hoth, the remaining Hothian army, led by Mscoree, founded New Hoth in an isolated portion of the far north-west. The city quickly grew as the central region was abandoned and more and more refugees fled north. Before the Fifth Purge, New Hoth was considered the largest and most important city still standing, more than twice the size of the Hidden City, the second largest at the time. Modern estimates place it as the fourth largest city of all time.
