Countess Sheila, while she doesn't hold a place in the line of succession, is an important member of the royal family, being the Grandmother biologically to HHRH King Alexander, Duke Matthew, Dame Mia and HRH Princess Ayra, and mother of Countess Pamela, Duke Michael and Earl John Jr. While not directly involved in Lytera during the beginning, she enjoyed how it seemed to 'bond the family' during the early 2010's and had her home made a Crown Dependency in 2014, changing it's name in 2015. It's status was vague until it was included in the Act of Annexation and Territory Status 2019, where it was officially made a Crown Dependency. In 2020, as part of the Rising Sun initiative's first five year plan (2019-2024), to secure the thrones, the King began the process of converting the Crown Dependencies into full Lyteran towns.
Countess Sheila's speed at preparing Baknsburg meant that it was ready far sooner then planned, and it was fully annexed on the 28th, with her losing the title of Lady, as it was to only be used for non-heirs with a seat representing a crown dependency, and being given the title of Countess, which is a higher peerage title in Lytera then Lady.
Sheila spends most of her time maintaining the gardens of Baknsburg, and often looks after HRH Princess Ayra there.
