Best Answer

Guido Fowkes, or Fawkes, was one of the conspirators in the Gunpowder Plot to blow up the English parliament in 1603. He was caught as he was going to light the fuse to 36 barrels of gunpowder, and was tortured to try to make him reveal the names of the other conspirators. We celebrate the survival of parliament on 5th of November each year by means of fireworks and a bonfire on which we burn 'the guy' - Guy Fawkes.
