We all know the story of Guy Fawkes who wanted to blow up parliament. What did he wish to gain; the very people who were going to replace James were present? How did he think he would get away with... More > it? It does not make sense unless it was a story. Now, finally, you can read about the real plot, the plot to destroy the Catholic nobility hatched by Robert Cecil, Earl of Salisbury. Behind the scenes, he manipulated the cast in his play. Catesby, the supposed ringleader, had embraced Anglicanism, bringing his children up in the Anglican faith, yet he is portrayed as the zealous leader of the plot.

However, James's adoration of good looking favourites threatened to undermine Cecil's influence. What if Cecil could discover a plot that would kill the King and save him at the last minute? How would a king who feared assassination react to the man who saved him. He had already rewarded Ramsay who had served his life. Cecil would be James's hero.< Less
