Sosha Soruna ruled as Queen of the Royal House of Naboo during the Age of the Galactic Empire. In the aftermath of the Battle of Endor, where the Alliance to Restore the Republic defeated the authoritarian Galactic Empire, Queen Soruna—whose world had been a member of the democratic government that preceded the Empire—became a potential ally for Mon Mothma, Chancellor of the Alliance. Leia Organa visited Queen Soruna to encourage her to join the New Republic, less than a month after the destruction of the second Death Star.
