Princess Leia Organa Solo was born to Padme Amidala and (the unknowing) Anakin Skywalker during the events of Revenge of the Sith. Amidala died right after the birth of Leia and her twin brother, Luke, and was adopted by Bail Organa, the then senator for the planet Alderaan to the newly formed Galactic Empire, and the Republic before that. Leia was raised on Alderaan by Bail and his wife, and never told her true heritage as the daughter of the man that became Darth Vader. She became the youngest senator to serve in the Imperial Senate when she replaced her father as senator for Alderaan at the age of 16.
She played an integral part in the formation and victory of the Rebel Alliance against the Empire, serving as almost something of a rallying symbol after her home planet of Alderaan was destroyed by the Empire during the events of A New Hope. She even shows up somewhat briefly in The Force Unleashed when Starkiller is tasked with saving her from an Imperial stronghold on the Wookiee planet of Kashyyyk.
After the Empire was defeated and the New Republic established, Leia went on the marry Han Solo and give him three children, the twins Jacen and Jaina, and a third child Anakin whom she named after her birth father. She also served as the Head of State for the New Republic for quite some time, succeeding Mon Mothma.
Shortly before the Yuuzhan Vong war, Organa Solo stepped down as Head of State to spend time with her family and focus more on her Jedi training at the hands of her brother Luke and his wife Mara Jade. During the Yuuzhan Vong war, she lost her son, Anakin who died on a mission to destroy an anti-Jedi weapon that the Vong had developed, and her other son, Jacen, went into a self imposed exile. When Jacen came back, he ended up himself becoming a Sith Lord, and being killed by his sister Jaina, but not before himself having a child named Allana. Leia and Han went on to adopt Allana at the request of her mother after Jacen's death.
