Guy Fawkes and Bonfire NightGuy Fawkes and B

  2. Guy Fawkes was born on 13 April 1570 in York, and died on 31 January 1606 in London.
  3. He was alive during the end of Queen Elizabeth I’s reign, and the beginning of King James I’s reign.
  4. Guy Fawkes was a Catholic, and didn’t agree with the Protestant faith of the King.
  5. Guy became friends with Robert Catesby, who had an idea to kill the King by blowing up the houses of Parliament.
  6. It was actually Robert Catesby who led the Gunpowder Plot, not Guy Fawkes – there were 13 people involved.
  7. The job Guy Fawkes had in the Gunpowder Plot was to guard the 36 barrels of gunpowder that had been stored in a basement underneath the House of Lords.
  8. Guy Fawkes was arrested in the basement on the day he was going to light the gunpowder, 5 November, and he was taken to the Tower of London.
