Catholics were unhappy with king James and he said they have to pay a fine if not they have to go to the protestant and they didn't like that idea.Catholics didn't like him because he wanted everyone to be a protestant and he really wanted the bible in English not latin.He wanted people to go to protestant churches .
the catholics have to go to the protestants church or pay a big fine
Robert Catesby got three friends together and made a plan to blow the king up with gunpowder in the Houses of Parliament.So everyone would be happy.
Lets make a plan!
The problem was is that they didn't know how to use gunpowder so they got Guy Fawkes . He said that they would need twenty barrels of gunpowder but they didn't know where it would be.
I do but you would need twenty barrels of gunpowder to blow the king up.
Do you know how to use gunpowder?
Between Guy Fawkes and Robert catesby they decided that they would need three more people to help them but that was a big mistake because one of them had a friend who worked in the Houses of parliament and he didn't want them being blown up.
I think we need three more people to help us
James sent soldiers to search the House of Parliament and they found nothing then they seached all the houses and they foun a cellar with Guy Fawkes in there with twenty barrels of gunpowder.
Guy Fawkes was arrested,tortured and executed and the people who helped got arrested and tried for treason.King James never fogot what happened.
