List of Dacian kings

This is a list of kings of the ancient land of Dacia. The chronology may not be very precise, since many of the Greek and Roman writings on the Dacian history were lost through time. Also, during some periods Dacia was divided into several kingdoms, so that some of these kings had overlapping reigns.
