A gangster, or mobster, as they are also called, is a criminal who partakes in his or her unlawful activity in a gang. Most gangs, especially back in the day, were said to be organized crime, meaning that they engaged in illegal activity to gain money and/or profit. The gangsters in this quiz are some of the best. The question is, do you know your mobster history enough to name them all? 

Crime is nothing new to this world; in different countries, gangs are known by different names. In Italy, they were called the Cosa Nostra, in Russia, the Vory v Zakone, in China, the Triads and in Ireland, the Dead Rabbits. Of course, many countries also had their own versions of the Mafia as well. Emigration began to blur the lines and soon, the Cosa Nostra were in the USA, so were the Triads, the Whyos and the Five Points Gang.

But not all gangsters achieved greatness, for lack of a better word. Some of these gangsters have become so famous that books have been written and movies have been made chronicling their lives, illegal activities and sometimes, their legacies. People like Al Capone, Frank Costello, The Kray Twins and Lucky Luciano are some of the most notorious, and they're all in this quiz. Is a picture enough for you to identify them?
