How would you have explained where Palpatine learned to use The Force?

The prequels went with him being part of the ancient “Sith” lineage. What would you have done? Something similar? Ex-Jedi? Self-taught? Ancient being?

If I had to give Palpatine a backstory, as much as I liked his characterization in the Darth Plagueis novel, if it were up to me, I’d probably go with the “ancient being” angle. Have him be this eldritch, demonic entity where no one knows how long he’s existed.

Maybe he could be the one who ruled the galaxy 1000 years before the movies?

That could be left open to viewer speculation. Though I’d rather they stayed consistent with the “thousand generations” Obi-Wan mentioned in ANH.
