Who was the real Guy Fawkes?

Guy Fawkes was born in 1570 to a church lawyer called Edward, he is best known for the unsuccessful gunpowder plot that took place on November 5th 1605.

During this time, there was great tension between Catholics and Protestants across Europe. Queen Elizabeth I had banned all forms of Catholic worship, in an attempt to execute her plan of a protestant nation. 

Many Catholics faced persecution and were subjected to unfair fines, isolating the Catholic community and as result, many people became restless of the injustice leading to rebellion groups forming.

Guy Fawkes joined a group of conspirators at the time, who plotted to blow up parliament in an attempt to other throw the monarchy and reinstate Catholicism. They were caught on the 5th of November and later sentenced to execution.

This event led to what we now know as of 'Bonfire night', which is celebrated every year on the 5th of November.
