History: Sailor Moon (and the other Sailor Scouts) are actually the reincarnated warriors from the Moon Kingdom which consisted of the various planets of the Solar System several centuries ago.
Many of these warriors (the Sailor Senshi) were killed in a terrible battle with the Negaforce which was defeated and sealed away with the Ginzuishou by Queen Serenity, the Ruler of the Moon Kingdom. Dying, Queen Serenity took the souls of all of those who had died in the final attack, including her daughter, the Moon Princess, and sent them into the future to be reborn.
In the present day, Usagi Tsukino was found by Luna, a black cat (and a Royal Advisor in the Moon Kingdom) with a crescent moon on her head and was given a magical broach that enabled her to become Sailor Moon. She was charged with the mission to defeat the Negaforce which was beginning to break free of the seal placed upon it by the long dead Queen Serenity, find and locate her fellow warriors, and above all else, to find the Moon Princess who possessed the Ginzuishou.
Although reluctant, Usagi had many adventures battling the minions of the Negaforce and would in turn, locate the other Sailor Senshi; Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Venus. She and the others were aided by the mysterious Tuxedo Kamen who had his own mysterious agenda. In the end, Usagi discovered that she was the Moon Princess. She also discovered that Tuxedo Kamen was the reincarnated Prince of Earth, Endymion. Centuries ago, she and Endymion were in love until they were killed by the minions of the Negaforce. Now they were reunited in the present day.
Sailor Moon and the Sailor Senshi would have many other battles and many other victories against other opponents including the forces of Nemesis, a group of time travelers from the future; Mistress 9 and Pharaoh 90; and others.
It has been prophesied that sometime in the future (circa the 30th Century), Sailor Moon will ultimately become Neo-Queen Serenity, the Ruler of Crystal Tokyo alongside her husband, King Endymion in a new age called the Crystal Millennium.

Above history of Sailor Moon kindly provided by Michael Higuchi, supplemented by James Shaw.
Spanish Sailor Moon fan Ana Varas informs me that in that country the heroine's real name is Serena Tsukino. She also provided information for the other sections of the profile above (everything but the history). Check out her Sailor Moon site.
Lyandra Angel adds "The first person to call Usagi "Odango Atama" (Dumpling Head) is Mamoru, and is later adopted by Haruka and Seiya when they each meet her, although all three come up with it on their own without hearing someone else call her it first. Mamoru stops calling her that after the Doom Tree (Mukaijin) series. I don't think any of the other girls call her that."
CLARIFICATIONS: Not to be confused with
any of the other Sailor Scouts
