Guy Fawkes was one of the members of The Gunpowder Plot of 1605 in which a group of Catholics attempted to blow up the Houses of Parliament and kill James I, the King of England, to protest Protestant rule.
Since Henry the VIII's reign, England was divided between Catholics and Protestants . Queen Elizabeth was Protestant, but with her death and the succession of James I as King, Catholics thought their persecution was at and end. They were wrong. Shortly after James' coronation in 1603, it became clear he had no intention to help Catholics.
Fawkes and his conspirators went ahead with their plans: to blow up Parliament on November 5th and it was that day that King James' men discovered the stockpile. They also discovered Fawkes, who was captured, interrogated, and tortured; after two days he confessed the details of the Plot. Guy Fawkes was finally executed.
