More Catholics joined the plotters, but as more men heard about the plot, it became harder to keep it secret.
They found Guy Fawkes in the cellar with the gunpowder and some matches ready to light it.
After the failed plot people in London were told to light bonfires to celebrate that the King was still alive.
The day was commemorated to serve as a warning to others not to plot treason against the King.
