Guy Fawkes - Artists Impression
Guy Fawkes is of course the infamous fall-guy for the 1605 Gunpowder Plot to blow up Parliament and the King (all the way back to Scotland for the King).
Guy Fawkes was hardly the mastermind behind this dastardly scheme. That was one Robert Catesby. However Fawkes is always remembered and his capture and execution is celebrated every year by dozens in the UK.
His attempt at mass murder of the Sovereign and Most of Parliament is celebrated by millions the world over.
