When king James was crowned different people wanted him to do different things to support their religion so he chose to be a protestant and make the bible in english.So not many people went to church then James ordered them to come or they had to him lots of money.
All of the catholics got really mad at James and one of them named Robert Catesby had a plan to get rid of him so he got three friends and told them his plan. His plan was to blow up the houses of Parliament with James ther to sign them back up to their jobs.
Robert Catesby found a gunpowder professional to help them trying to blow up Houses of Parliament and King James he said yes because he didn't like him either. He said they would need twenty barrels of gunpowder to blow it all up and he would help him.
