what year did guy forks try to blow up the houses of Parliament
  Guy Fawkes tried to blow up the Houses of Parliament (where Parliament sits) and not the Tower of London (which is a castle and prison at the other end of London) on November 5th 1605. They were hoping to kill many of the Protestant nobility in the house of Lords but was exposed when one of...
Guido Fawkes (Guy Fawkes) role in The Gunpowder plot was to get the Gunpowder, move it to Parliament and lastly to light it and blow Parliament up. But the main aim is to blow the House of Lords up because King James, the lords and Bishops will be there.
The courts were, and are, empowered by the monarch. The trial was a foregone conclusion as Fawkes was caught red-handed, so how do you answer your question? Was it the trial judge, the jury who found him guilty of Treason, or the King in whose name this was all done?
dont know but as he was caught red handed it is a moot point   ---------------   Fawkes did indeed plead not guilty. His reasoning was ignorance of  certain aspects of his indictment. But he was still found guilty  and sentenced to death.
Guy Fawkes was a devout Catholic and James I was a Protestant. The King was the supreme head of the church so the Church of England was Protestant. Guy Fawkes wanted to kill the King so a Catholic King could take his place.
because that was his real name, but we just know him as Guy

The answer previously provided details the death by hanging,  drawin, and quartering of the convicted Guy (Guido) Fawkes.    Fawkes had somewhat cooperated with his captors after having been  arrested in the cellars below Parliament's chambers at Westminister  Hall. Fawkes gave a partial...
The Gunpowder Plot, a conspiracy by Roman Catholic gentry in  England, was led by Robert  Catesby. He was a Catholic of wealth and lineage  who had suffered much as a recusant both by fines and imprisonment.  The plan was to blow up London's Houses of Parliament. The plot  failed when Guy...
There are numerous theories by different contributors detailed below: Robert Cecil framed Guy Fawkes (some people believe). All gunpowder was controlled by the government and kept in the tower of London so they must have got permission off the king to buy it, that was very hard. also the cellar was...
He was a Roman Catholic Revolutionary involved in the failed 1605 Gunpowder Plot against King James I if England for which he was drawn, quartered and hung.. Guy (or Guido) Fawkes was a soldier in Catholic Spain's Army. He is mostly known for his famous Gunpowder Plot against Parliament on 5th...
One of the Catholic gang who intended to blow up the (mainly Protestant) House of Lords sent a letter to a Catholic Peer to warn him. He became suspicious and a search of the cellars was carried out. The gunpowder was discovered and Guy Fawkes captured when he came to explode it.
King James I dealt severely with Catholic Christians; locking them up in prison ordering for their murder and taking their money simply because they followed a foreign leader, alias The Pope. The Catholics were annoyed at this and decided to take action through a group of plotters and their Leader...
No he didn`t. He was discovered in the cellar of Parliament, overpowered by guards and arrested. The gunpowder plot didn`t end with a bang, but a whimper.
  people often make the mistake of thinking he was burned when actually he was hung. people get the idea from when, on bonfire night, people sometimes burn a doll of guy but actually that is just to symbolise him plotting to blow up parliament
November 5th is a commemoration of the discovery and foiling of the gunpowder plot which was intended to blow up the Houses of Parliament in 1605. Guido Fawkes was the man who was caught but not the main perpetrator.
No, Guy Fawkes was infact around within the 16th and 17th Century, the Date making him famous was the 5th November 1603 when he attempted to blow up Parliment. Known as 'The Gunpowder Plot.'
I am quite persuaded by recent historical research that suggests Guido Fawkes and his so-called accomplices had nothing to do with any kind of plot at all. The suggestion is that so much gunpowder - barrels and barrels of the stuff - was quite publically 'discovered' underneath Westminster Hall that...
First he was tortured. Then he was dragged to his place of execution. Then hung until almost dead. After that his belly was slit open and his genitalia removed. Then cut into four pieces and finally beheaded. (Hung, drawn and quartered)
The Cunningham test would be justifiable to a persons guilty mind, since the Cunningham test is a subjective test, so the test is mainly on the person who is convicted of the crime. The Caldwell test is an objective test that the jury will give a verdict based on the act of the person whom is...
13 April 1570 - 31 January 1606
because of what he attempted to do. No one else would've ever tried to kill the king, although they may have wanted to. He is remembered as a hero in some cases and others as a typical terrorist. as spoken by Chloe B
It's is important because its a reminder of the Plot and the downfall of the Catholic Conspirators.

Oh because of a little thing called treason and attempted murder. He tried to blow up Parliament with the people in it.
Committing treason and attempted mass murder tend to cause extreme punishments. Trying to blow up the seat of government will bring down a serious punishment.

countries of the Commonwealth celebrate it due to their link to the UK
