History

The Spanish Kings was one of the two largest gangs in Chicago. They were locked in a war against the other big gang, the Southstone Rangers. In an attempt to defuse the gang situation, Falcon had his apprentice Patriot approach the Southstone Rangers to convince them to work out a truce with their enemies, the Kings' leader, Ortiz, heard him out. Unfortunately, the day when both gangs gathered to call truce, the leader of the Southstone Rangers, Dray, instead shot the Spanish King's leader point blank in the head in front of Falcon, and chaos ensued.[1]

Trivia

The Spanish Kings are an obvious stand-in for the infamous Latino super-gang in Chicago, the Latin Kings.
