On the night of November 5, 1605, during the throne speech of the Protestant King James I, when, in addition to him, members of both houses of parliament and the supreme representatives of the judiciary of the country were present in the House of Lords.
Guy Fox tried to set fire to the barrels of gunpowder in the basement of the Palace of Westminster. One of the accomplices warned the royal lord William Parker, the 4th Baron Montigla of the planned explosion, and said that he would not come the next day to the palace building. He decided to save not only his life, but also the royal lives. He warned the king, and the next day Guy was arrested and taken to the Tower.
