Guy Fawkes Bust I Want You Gunpowder Plot Leader
Figurine. Guy Fawkes (13 April 1570 - 31 January 1606), also known as
Guido Fawkes, the name he adopted while fighting for the Spanish, was a
member of a group of provincial English Catholics who planned the failed
Gunpowder Plot of 1605. Fawkes was born and educated in York. His
father died when Fawkes was eight years old, after which his mother
married a recusant Catholic. Fawkes later converted to Catholicism and
left for the continent, where he fought in the Eighty Years' War on the
side of Catholic Spain against Protestant Dutch reformers in the Low
Countries. He travelled to Spain to seek support for a Catholic
rebellion in England but was unsuccessful. He later met Thomas Wintour,
with whom he returned to England. Wintour introduced Fawkes to Robert
Catesby, who planned to assassinate King James I and restore a Catholic
monarch to the throne. The plotters secured the lease to an undercroft
beneath the House of Lords, and Fawkes was placed in charge of the
gunpowder they stockpiled there. Prompted by the receipt of an anonymous
letter, the authorities searched Westminster Palace during the early
hours of 5 November, and found Fawkes guarding the explosives. Over the
next few days, he was questioned and tortured, and eventually he broke.
Immediately before his execution on 31 January, Fawkes jumped from the
scaffold where he was to be hanged and broke his neck, thus avoiding the
agony of the mutilation that followed. Fawkes became synonymous with
the Gunpowder Plot, the failure of which has been commemorated in
Britain since 5 November 1605. His effigy is traditionally burned on a
bonfire, commonly accompanied by a firework display. The Guy Fawkes Bust
I Want You Gunpowder Plot Leader Figurine Sculpture commemorates this
