King John (r. 1199–1216) is best remembered for granting Magna Carta in June 1215, although he sought its annulment almost immediately

King John (r. 1199–1216) is best remembered for granting Magna Carta in June 1215, although he sought its annulment almost immediately. The youngest son of Henry II (r. 1157–1189), John succeeded his brother, Richard I who is known as Richard the Lionheart (r. 1189–1199), as King of England in 1199. His reign was marked by a string of unsuccessful military campaigns, a prolonged struggle with the Church and the baronial rebellion which led to Magna Carta.

However, the Spanish king denied his support. Later, Fawkes was introduced to Robert Catesby, the leader of conspirators of the ‘Gunpowder Plot. Fawkes traveled back to England under a false name and planned to blow up the ‘Parliament of England’ and to overthrow the king. However, the plot was discovered and Fawkes and others were arrested. After a thorough interrogation, Fawkes revealed the details of his plan. Soon, he was publicly executed. The date of his execution is still celebrated in Britain, as the day that marked the victory of the throne over conspirators.
