the group of catholics wanted to assassinate him because he was a catholic but Gu Fawkes was innocent because he was set up by king James' servant! Guy Fawkes was found underneath parliament with a lot of gunpowder but he was set up by the lords servant who was a criminal) but apparently had a new start! A weird letter was sent to the lord telling him that there was a plot to blow up parliament. The servant was in charge when the guards went to search parliament for gunpowder. He waited 10 days after the letter was delivered, it was said that he waited until he knew Guy was in the basement!

He was not likeable at all as he was too kind to Catholics and not kind enough to others under different circumstances (other religions). He was not a fair/balanced king and did not appreciate all his people.

Why did James earl ray shoot Martin Luther King jr even know he was white?

James Earl Ray shot Dr. King, even thought James was white, he didn't like the way things were going. He wanted everything to go back. He wanted whites to be good, and blacks to be bad. He shot Martin while he was walking on his balcony for a meeting. James fired the gun in Martin's head. Martin fell down on the balcony floor. While he did, James ran away. A little while later, Dr. King's wife, and some other people came to the meeting. They found Martin Luther King's body lying on the floor. They pointed over near a corner where I think they saw a gun lying on the ground. And so that's how Martin Luther King Jr died.Rest in peach Dr. King.- Maya

Why did Guy Fawkes and his fellow conspirators feel that they had to do the deed that made him famous?

Catholics from England had expected that King James l would be far more tolerant of them. It turned out that he was the opposite and ordered for all the Catholic Priests to leave England immediately. Some Catholics got really angry by this so they plotted to kill King James and put his only daughter on the throne instead. They not only wanted to kill King James but they planned it so they would also kill all the people in the government building. that is why they wanted to kill King James in hope that they would be famous as well.
