Marriage to Emperor Wilhelm
In July 2013, Wilhelm was visiting his home town when he sent Alyssa an online message, he then invited her out to lunch in nearby Joliet. Wilhelm found Alyssa very attractive, and greatly enjoyed her company. The two spent their entire time rekindling their friendship and kept in touch following the visit. In the time after their meeting Wilhelm abdicated as New European Emperor and declared the micronation defunct.
By January 2014, Wilhelm was determined to marry Alyssa. Despite the grumblings from Wilhelm's family, Wilhelm and Alyssa married on 18 January 2014 in Illinois.
North American Empress
In the early months of her marriage Alyssa was not very interested in micronational politics or micronationalism in general. She acknowledged herself as Empress and her son the heir to the throne but did little else in participation. However she would listen in on cabinet meetings between Prime Minister Marx and her husband, which sparked her interest in economics. After debate in the cabinet over her right to participate in NAC politics, given her position as consort, it was decided that she was allowed to be in government as long as she remained independent.
She was appointed to head the Ministry of Finance on 2 November 2015.
