This is a list of kings of Greece, that is, kings of the modern nation-state of Greece. Only Otto was actually styled King of Greece. His successor, George I, was styled King of the Hellenes, as were all future monarchs.

The House of Wittelsbach held the Greek Crown between 1832 and 1862, when it passed to the House of Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Glücksburg.
