King James has demanded that everyone should say there prayers in the protestant churches and he had the bibles translated from Latin to English. If anyone didn't agree they would have to pay a fine.
Yeah let us prayer in our churches!
Boo King James!
Robert Catesby (the man who was planning to kill the King) and three other friends, who he trusted, conjured up a plan. He wanted to blow up the Houses of Parliament with gunpowder (and the king along with it). They decided to let the gunpowder explode on the one day the King was there.
OK. Here's the plan...
The problem with there plan was that none of them knew how to use gunpowder so they found a man called Guy Fawkes to help. Guy Fawkes said they needed twenty barrels of gunpowder and somewhere to put them so they asked the house next door and hid the barrels in there cellar.
Yes but your gonna need alot!
Do you know how to use gunpowder?
Guy Fawkes and Robert decided between them that they should let another three people into there plot but one of them had a friend in the Houses of Parliament. He wrote a letter to warn him but that wasn't the best of ideas! He took the letter to the King.BIG MISTAKE!!!
So? Are you in?
What about John?
Dear John, beware of the gun- powder plot. Jack.
After the King heard about the gunpowder plot he sent guards to check the houses of Parliament for any gunpowder and then they checked all the houses around and found Guy Fawkes and the twenty barrels of gunpowder in the cellar nextdoor!
you've been caught!
Guy Fawkes was arrested and so was his three friends. They were found guilty, accused for treason and executed!
