The 2019 Treason Plot was a coup to overthrow and dethrone the reigning Prince of Woodlandia (Prince Shawn) and carry to out a possible assassination attempt, led by a close personal friend of the Prince's, the then Acting Prime Minister of Woodlandia, Lisa. This is the first account of illegal activity recorded in the Principality of Woodlandia. The 2019 treason plot brought on a new government era with many changes resulting in the creation of new laws, a new Prime Minister, and tighter security measures for both the royal family and the Principality of Woodlandia; resulting in the formation of the Royal Woodlandia Guard.

Event

Seemingly qualified at the time and a close personal friend of the Sovereign Prince Shawn, Lisa was chosen by the Prince and unofficially inaugurated as the Acting Prime Minister of the Principality of Woodlandia until a formal inauguration was held. Though Lisa had not yet been sworn into office as the official prime minister of Woodlandia, she was acting as such, and was expected to carry out all political activities of a prime minister who was sworn into office.

Towards the beginning of the summer of 2019, not long after the official proclamation of independence of Woodlandia from Ontario, Canada (12 March 2019), Prince Shawn had grown suspicious about the diplomatic activities of the Acting Prime Minister of Woodlandia, Madame Lisa.

Around early August the Prince discovered that Acting Prime Minister Lisa had been meeting in secret with a former friend of the Prince's, Mr. Scott and on more then one occasion had openly discussed political activities and confidential state government secrets with him, to which she later admitted to, after first denying the meetings ever took place and that she had no contact with Mr. Scott or anyone else.

First Attack on the Prince

In the early afternoon of mid August, Madame Lisa unexpectedly and violently interrupted a government meeting between the Sovereign Prince Shawn and the Minister of Wildlife, Forestry and Fisheries, Mr. Robert (later 1st Prime Minister of Woodlandia).

The meeting was taking place at Minister Robert's private home residence where the Prince was visiting for official government business. For this occasion, Madame Lisa was not asked to attend.

Upon finding out that a government meeting was taking place without her, Madame Lisa immediately tracking down the prince. Not long after finding out his whereabouts, she unexpectedly arrived at the ministers home where the Prince and Minister Robert sat in chairs at a table under the shade of a large tree in the Minister's front yard.

Having invited herself, Lisa walked across the yard to where the men were sitting at the table, pulled out a chair and sat down. Without speaking a word, she oddly stared at them for a short time before the men began to question her actions. The Prince questioned her about her odd behaviour and asked her how she knew about the meeting, while the minister questioned her on why she had shown up unexpectedly and unannounced at his private residence. Still, Lisa did not speak a word, even after the prince insisted that she reveal her reason for interrupting a government meeting between himself and one of his ministers.

After some time of trying to communicate with her, the men suggested that Lisa go home and try to get some rest, as they believed she was possibly suffering from mental health issues. Before they could finish what they were trying to say, Lisa quickly became irate and began to tell off the Prince. Most of what she said was in relation to her unhappiness about not being included in the private meeting between the prince and the minister. The two men continued explaining to her why she was not needed for the meeting that afternoon and how she may lose her position altogether if she doesn't take the prince's advice and go home.

Suddenly, jumping up from her chair and aggressively springing forward towards the prince, Lisa was enraged. She attempted to push a table out of the way while going towards the prince, spilling the men's drinks not only the table top, but also onto the items that were sitting on top of the table. Government documents that the men were using for the meeting were drenched in liquid, as well as the cell phones of both the Prince and the mister; whose phone was almost entirely drenched.

Before Lisa could reach the Prince, Minister Robert stepped in between them, blocking her attack on the prince. Lisa was very enraged and she continued to go after the prince. She attempted going around the minister to get at the prince, but the minister would move when she would and continuously blocked her attempts to injure the prince. This continued for several minutes before Lisa grew tired, finally sitting back down in her original chair as if nothing happened.

Once more, Minister Robert asked Lisa to leave and remove herself from his property. Calmly, she apologized to Minister Robert and left. The prince choosing to deal with her actions at a later date.

Thinking it a better idea to continue the interrupted meeting elsewhere due to recent security reasons, Prince Shawn and Minister Robert decided to use the prince's office at the prince's private residence.

Less than a half an hour later and for the second time, the government meeting between the two men was brought to a halt by Lisa. Easily bypassing security measures (as a recognized member of government), Lisa made her way to the Prince's office and began speaking loudly at the closed door.

Interrogation

No official investigation or trial was held for Lisa. However, the Prince ordered an unofficial interrogation to be held so that she may have a chance to explain herself before punishment was given. In the Principality of Woodlandia, an attack of any kind upon the Prince or the Royal family is a serious offense. The Prince also ordered that the investigation include questions about Lisa meeting in secret and her disclosure of confidential government information to members of the public.

During the unofficial interrogation, lasting more than three hours, Lisa refused to answer any questions. Oddly, when asked she was more than willing to take a lie detector test. Although a lie detector machine would not be available for 2 weeks, the prince agreed and she was questioned 2 weeks later.

Lisa was questioned using a professional police polygraph test, also known as a lie detector test. The test administered had used "state of the art" biometrics to measure breathing, heart rate/pulse, body temperature and body responses; like when someone is deceitful.

Over the course of twenty minutes, Lisa was asked a total of 10 investigative questions and three additional inquiries by a request of the Prince, to which she agreed.

According to the polygraph test results, Lisa had 100 percent failed all ten questions asked to her and had purposely been deceitful or misleading with more than half of the questions.

Originally, Lisa was to be asked a total of 21 questions. However, she had only answered about half of the questions when she began to panic after inquiring about the time. In a hurry, Lisa insisted that she had to leave for some kind of appointment that she had forgotten about but suddenly remembered. She stated that she wouldn't be able to answer any more questions and left quickly.

Aftermath

Trial

As both the Lord Justice and the Sovereign Prince of the Principality of Woodlandia, Prince Shawn ultimately held decision over the charges and punishment of the two conspirators involved in the plot.

Charges

Mr. Scott

As Lord Justice, Prince Shawn ruled that because Mr. Scott was not a citizen of Woodlandia, and due to his low level of involvement in the plot towards the Prince, lack of evidence and no willing confession, that he would not be charged with high treason or terrorism, but instead would be charged with both the conspiracy to commit high treason and the suspected involvement in acts of terrorism against the Principality of Woodlandia and the Sovereign Prince of the Principality of Woodlandia. Prince Shawn also ruled that Mr. Scott may have been suffering from mental illness.
