In 1603, King James I became a King-a protestant King- and because of this his was very disliked by Catholics.
Everyone MUST be a protestant and go to the Church of England!
Yes your majesty.
Robert Catesby met up with his three friends at a pub and they all discussed the plan which was to blow up the Houses of Parliament! They needed to get 20 gunpowder barrels to sneak under the Houses of Parliament.
What is it?
I have a great plan to bring Catholicism back to England!
All they needed now was an expert that knew how to use gunpowder. His name was Guy Fawkes he was the expert. He told them every thing they needed to know and then got to work.
Can you help us?
However, Catesby told another three men about the plot and one of the mens friend worked in the Houses of Parliament. Since he didn't want his friend to get hurt, he told his friend to stay away from the Houses of Parliament for the open day but then the man told the King about the warning from his friend.
Therefore, the King was afraid that something bad will happen to him and he sent his soldiers to search around the Houses of Parliament. They didn't find him until they looked into the Parliament's neighbour's cellar. That was when they found Guy Fawkes and the gunpowder...
Then, he was arrested,tortured and executed as well as all the rest of the men that was included in the plot. To torture Guy Fawkes, he was put on the rack and was stretched until his arms and legs were pulled out of their sockets. However all the other men were hung, drawn and quartered.
