    I want to ask the following question:

    Who were the Catholic Kings?

    Would I say:

    ¿Quiénes fueron los Reyes Católicos?


    ¿Quiénes eran los Reyes Católicos?

    Gracias :)

    both options are correct; it depends on the context (or on a style decision).

    ¿Quiénes fueron los Reyes Católicos? the answer would be their history, who they were, what did they do, etc.
    ¿Quiénes eran los Reyes Católicos? the answer can be "Isabel y Fernando"

    But both options are ok.
