GUY FAWKES.. the face of anonymous

Guy Fawkes, the son of a Edward Fawkes, was born in York in 1570. Edward Fawkes was a proctor of the ecclesiastical courts and advocate of the consistory court of the Archbishop of York.

As a child Fawkes attended St. Peters School in York with John Wright and Christopher Wright.

Fawkes was brought up as a Protestant but was converted to Roman Catholic after reading about the way Henry VIII had persecuted religious dissents.

In 1592 married Maria Pulleyn. The following year Fawkes went to the Netherlands where he enlisted in the Spanish army under Archduke Albert of Austria. He also helped the Spanish capture Calais in 1596. Later he travelled to Spain in an attempt to persuade the king to send Catholic troops to invade England.

When Elizabeth I died in 1603 without children, Mary's son, was next in line to the throne. As James was a Protestant, Parliament was also in favour of him becoming king. The Roman Catholics in England were upset that there was going to be another Protestant monarch. They also became very angry when James passed a law that imposed heavy fines on people who did not attend Protestant church services.

In May 1604, Robert Catesby devised the Gunpowder Plot, a scheme to kill James and as many Members of Parliament as possible. At a meeting at the Duck and Drake Inn Catesby explained his plan to Guy Fawkes, Thomas PercyJohn Wrightand Thomas Wintour. All the men agreed under oath to join the conspiracy. Over the next few months Francis Tresham,Everard DigbyRobert WintourThomas Bates and Christopher Wright also agreed to take part in the overthrow of the king.

After the death of James in the explosion, Robert Catesby planned to make the king's young daughter, Elizabeth, queen. In time, Catesby hoped to arrange Elizabeth's marriage to a Catholic nobleman. It was Everard Digby's task to kidnap Princess Elizabeth from Coombe Abbey.


Crispen van de Passe, The Gunpowder Plot Conspirators (c.1606)


Catesby's plan involved blowing up the Houses of Parliament on 5th November. This date was chosen because the king was due to open Parliament on that day. At first the group tried to tunnel under Parliament. This plan changed when Thomas Percy was able to hire a cellar under the House of Lords. The plotters then filled the cellar with barrels of gunpowder. Fawkes, because of his munitions experience in the Netherlands, was given the task of creating the explosion.

One of the people involved in the plot was Francis Tresham. He was worried that the explosion would kill his friend and brother-in-law, Lord Monteagle. On 26th October, Tresham sent Lord Monteagle a letter warning him not to attend Parliament on 5th November.

Lord Monteagle became suspicious and passed the letter to Robert Cecil, the king's chief minister. Cecil quickly organised a thorough search of the Houses of Parliament. While searching the cellars below the House of Lords they found Guy Fawkes and the gunpowder. Fawkes claimed he was John Johnson, the servant of Thomas Percy.

Fawkes was tortured and admitted that he was part of a plot to "blow the Soctsman (James) back to Scotland". On the 7th November, after enduring further totures, Fawkes gave the names of his fellow conspirators.

Guy Fawkes was found guilty of treason and executed along with Thomas Wintour, on 31st January, 1606. The two men were both hanged, drawn and quartered.

Hey Suzie, I need to share my research and dream form God on this Guy Fawke. I receive dreams like Joseph in the Bible, that went into Egypt. But I get dreams on some things on the Modern World. I hope you find this helpful my friend. 

            I'm well of ware of how the Catholic Church is. I know about the Illuminati and other Orders you people don't know about. I aware how Babylon is being build into the Modern world and how the Spiritual Egypt is! I have done much research on these Ancients. And Im also well aware of a Middle Age Cult, that has just risen sense the 1980's through Alan Moore, a Magician and Occultist, driven by Aliester Crawleys wicked Doctrines. This has given rise to a cult, called the V-Vendetta for Vengeance. That came form a man named Gay Fawke, He was a Jesuit and this is a Jesuit conspricy of Babylon and the Papacy head of Rome! Here Jesus Disiple here's my stuff on the V Cult that's become more and more sense the 2006 movie of this, made by Alan Moore. And I know how this all used the Face of Satan, its a very Ancient thing of deception. Form my research Aliester Crawely set out too destroy Christianty and the free world! And 2012 is the year of Horus, the start of the New Age, I do believe this is very Egyptian and here's my research and the parrells between the V-Vendetta Cult too Horus, the Ancient Egyptian god, the Egyptian god of God of the king, the sky and vengeance.,2389.0.html

A small group took shape, under the leadership of Robert Catesby. Catesby felt that violent action was warranted. Indeed, the thing to do was to blow up the Houses of Parliament. In doing so, they would kill the King, maybe even the Prince of Wales, and the Members of Parliament who were making life difficult for the Catholics. Today these conspirators would be known as extremists, or terrorists.
