In 1603, there was a new King called James. King James was a protestant King so all of the Catholics were very upset with King James. The protestants wanted the bible to be in English and that the churches should be plain and simple not all fancy like the Catholics and the Catholics wanted the bible to be in Latin.
Yes sir right away sir
Please go and tell them pesky Catholics to come to the protestant church
One of the men (named Robert Catesby) came up with a plan (a plot as they know it as) and the plan was to blow up the Houses of Parliament and they only one to do it because the King is only there for one night because there was only one day when the Kings and Queens go there.
Robert Catesby and his friends went to visit Guy Fawkes because Guy Fawkes is the best person they knew that knew how to use gunpowder so they went to visit him and asked him to help them and luckily he was not very pleased with the king either so he agreed to help them.
Robert Catesby decided that fore was not enough so they invited three more people. Unfortunately, one of them was a friend of one of the guards and the guard told the King.
The King ordered the guard to search the Houses of Parliament and he found nothing but to be safe he checked the cellars of the next door neighbours and they found Guy Fawkes.
Sadly, Guy Fawkes was arrested, tortured and executed and the rest were hung, drawn and quartered and they all died even the person who told on them and tried to save them.
