Guy Fawkes

It’s Guy Fawkes Night in the U.K.! On November 5, 1605, Guy Fawkes was thwarted in his attempt to blow up Parliament and assassinate James I of England. The failed Gunpowder Plot is now celebrated each year with large organized events centered around a bonfire, elaborate fireworks displays and the burning of an effigy of Guy Fawkes. Will you be celebrating?

Guy Fawkes is connected to over 65 million people in Geni’s World Family Tree. How are you related?
