This is a list of monarchs of the Kingdom of Ingerland from 899 until the present day. The list traditionally starts with Oswald I of Colsex, whose rule represents the first unbroken line of kings to rule the whole of Ingerland. Previous attempts by kings to unite the various petty kingdoms date back to the VIII century, but none survived their death. Since unification, there have been over 30 monarchs of Ingerland.
