While reading Plots Against Henry IV I came to the conclusion that events have occurred within recent history that seem to be very similar to what occurred between Henry and those who wished to murder him The plot against King Henry IV was in essence an assassination attempt The past century has been plagued with such attempts The most infamous example would have to be the assassination of President John F Kennedy Although it only took one attempt to kill the president unlike the attempts on King Henry IV the events definitely mirrored each other It is very easy to say that history seems to have a way of repeating itself What happened in Plots Against Henry IV could very well happen today in a matter of speaking When the attempts failed the wrath of King Henry ensued Henry said to Richard of Bordeaux It is a pity for you that you planned this The King is basically administering a death notice to all who were involved It is very clear that King Henry has enough power in those lands and that the people would definitely be loyal to him and take care of business which they eventually did If events like this occurred today the repercussions would most likely be quite different Instead of the people uniting behind the king and killing the criminals the present justice system would take it into their own hands Their methods although they would not be as gruesome would still accomplish the final goal The assassins would either be assessed the death penalty or sentenced to life in prison The followers of King Henry IV found and killed almost all of those who were involved in any way in the attempt of the assassination Even lowly knights and squires were eventually killed Today the Central Intelligence Agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation would track down all those involved in the attempt and prosecute them
