Guy Fawkes

Historical Figure, Criminal

Guy Fawkes (13 April 1570 – 31 January 1606), also known as Guido Fawkes, the name he adopted while fighting for the Spanish in the Low Countries, belonged to a group of Catholic Restorationists from England who planned the Gunpowder Plot of 1605. Their aim was to displace Protestant rule by blowing up the Houses of Parliament while King James I and the entire Protestant, and even most of the Catholic, aristocracy and nobility were inside.

  • “Of course not. I just wanted to see how they’d look on a beautiful woman. Wear them simply to please me. Do you know what this Guy Fawkes of ours is about?” He began to talk about the time of his grandfather and the plot to blow up the Parliament and all in it. “I can understand their impulse,” he said, smiling, shadows playing over his face.
