A distant relation of Guy Fawkes has been elected as a UK Independence Party councillor in Hampshire.
Retired headteacher Philip Fawkes and the would-be bomber shared a common ancestor in the Gunpowder Plotter's 15th century great-great-grandfather.
Mr Fawkes won the South Waterside ward in Hampshire County Council for Ukip.
When Mr Fawkes's candidacy was announced, party leader Nigel Farage said it showed "the blood of rebellion still runs in his veins".
Mr Fawkes defeated the Tory incumbent Alexis McEvoy, taking the ward with a majority of 315 and a 37.2% share of the vote.
Guy Fawkes's plan to kill King James I, MPs and Lords at the state opening of Parliament in 1605 by detonating 36 barrels of gunpowder was foiled.
