When you've got nothing to lose, do you lose it? When you lose everything, is it the end of the world, or does it just feel like it? In recent times, we've become all too aware of what can happen... More > when disaffection becomes suicidal, and murderous, intent. Four hundred years ago, in England, a group of desperate young men dedicated themselves not only to mass murder but the total elimination of the government and departments of state. 'Guy Fawkes - 5/11 Treason' recreates why the author thinks the conspirators planned what they planned, blending fact and fiction in a tense, intrigue-filled novel. We do things because we think or believe something; action is preceded by thinking, however crazy,impulsive or chaotic that thinking might be. The Gunpowder Plot resulted from what some people thought or believed. So,it was a war that was won, or lost, in the mind first of all. And it is the mind, of course, where the decisive battle is fought.< Less

More > blow up the House of Lords during the State Opening of England's Parliament on 5 November 1605, as the prelude to a popular revolt in the Midlands during which James's nine-year-old daughter, Princess Elizabeth, was to be installed as the Catholic head of state.

22 Robert Cecil and the Gunpowder Treason and Plot By Michael Fitzalan
eBook (ePub): $9.35
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. Guy Fawkes was simply a night-watchman guarding barrels. James I feared being stabbed or blown up; Cecil ran an efficient spy network; and he was able to play on James's fears. Read the true story that relies on facts. For far too long we have meekly accepted the propaganda of the age and ignored the flimsiness of those contrived coincidences that gave Cecil's outrageous plot credence. Now, you can read the truth< Less

King James, easily influenced, especially by a pretty face, male or female, needed to be restrained, especially with his profligate spending.

The Puritans were dealt with by the king at 'The Hampton Court Conference' and that left the Catholics and the pretty boys. If he could only hatch a plot to discredit the Catholics and save the king at the same time, he would remove any potential opposition and earn the king's undying gratitude, put him above all others in the king's estimation. So he did!< Less
