Galvatron was from an alternate time-line where Unicron turned Megatron into Galvatron (like the movie), unlike the movie, Galvatron and Unicron defeated the Autobots. Galvatron was given Earth to rule over, resulting in the devastation of North America.

Back in the main timeline, Unicron pulled Galvatron from the other timeline in order to be his warrior against the Autobots. Feeling like he was being used as a pawn, Galvatron rebelled against Unicron and helped the Autobots and Decepticons defeat Unicron. Megatron, who was merged with Ratchet and later separated, was found by Galvatron and the two had a little skirmish before Galvatron realized destroying Megatron might have ill effects on him.

As of the most recent Re-Generation 1 comics, Galvatron is on Earth along with Starscream and Shockwave, and Optimus Prime. Megatron is dead.

Edit: Athough...Galvatron is basically like the Hawkman of TF continuity, so what I said above is only part of the convoluted story, but as far as I know that is the Galvatron that "stuck".
