Hanged and quartered: the heinous end of the conspiracy to assassinate Queen Elizabeth I

On September 20, 1586, seven English Catholics were executed in London for high treason. They were accused of trying to assassinate Queen Elizabeth I in order to crown María Estuardo and return Catholicism to the country. The method chosen to end the lives of the leaders was atrocious. They were first hanged, but just before they were suffocated, the executioner cut the ropes and let them fall to the ground to lengthen his agony. He then castrated and dismembered them.

Among them was Anthony Babington, the powerful man in the shadow behind that conspiracy.
