GUY FAWKES was an English soldier and a member of a group of roman Catholic conspirators who attempted to carry out the Gunpowder Plot to assassinate King James I of England  (James VI of Scotland) and the members of both houses of Parliament of England with a huge explosion, which was prevented by his arrest on the 5th of November 1605.

Remember, remember, the fifth of November

The gunpowder treason and plot,

I see of no reason why Gunpowder Treason

should ever be forgot.
