In the Star Wars movie Revenge of the Sith we can see he below dialog between Anakin and Sidious (PALPATINE) after Anakin killed all Jedis:

ANAKIN: What have I done?

PALPATINE: You are fulfilling your destiny, Anakin. Become my apprentice. Learn to use the dark side of the Force.

ANAKIN: I will do whatever you ask.


ANAKIN: Just help me save Padme's life. I can't live without her. I won't let her die. I want the power to stop death.

PALPATINE: To cheat death is a power only one has achieved, but if we work together, I know we can discover the secret.

So my question is, is PALPATINE saying the one person's name who achieved cheating death?

Darth Plagueis The Wise

There is a scene earlier in the movie about this:

Palpatine: Did you ever hear the tragedy of Darth Plagueis The Wise?

Anakin: No?

Palpatine: I thought not. It’s not a story the Jedi would tell you. It’s a Sith legend. Darth Plagueis was a Dark Lord of the Sith, so powerful and so wise he could use the Force to influence the midichlorians to create life… He had such a knowledge of the dark side, he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying.
