|  ||What was the Gunpowder Plot?|
King James was the King of England in 1605, about 400 years ago. Every autumn, there was a special ceremony, when he would be at the Houses of Parliament in London.
A man called Guy Fawkes joined a group of men who did not like the King. They plotted to blow up the Houses of Parliament on the 5th November, when the King was there.
