Category:Gunpowder Plot

The Gunpowder Plot was an assassination attempt on King James I in 1605. A group of radical Catholics planned to blow up the English Parliament (and James with it) on the fifth of November. One of the radicals, Guy Fawkes, was caught under the parliament building with barrels of gunpowder, and his name has become synonymous with the plot itself. Guy Fawkes Night continues to be an excuse to celebrate with firecrackers and bonfires in the English-speaking world.
