Known as the gunpowder plot, the plan was for the 5 conspirators; Robert Catesby, Thomas Wintour, Jack Wright Thomas Percy, and Guy Fawkes to blow up Parliament on November 5th to kill James I, and replace him with his daughter Elizabeth on the throne as a Catholic ruler. The plot failed, and the participants were executed. These events are commemorated annually on November 5th, known as Guy Fawkes Day. It was created by King James I to remind those of the consequences to traitors by burning a straw dummy meant to represent Guy Fawkes.
