This article lists all Heads of State of Byrdia since its foundation as the Territory of Western Antarctica in 1922.

For Heads of State in the territories which preceded Byrdia, see List of Viceroys of New Ingria (1880-1918) and Governor of the American Antarctic Zone (1918-1922).

The Byrdian President governs alongside a Vice President.

Appointed Governors (1922-1980)

In 1922, the American Antarctic Zone was abolished, and two territories were officially established — Palmeria and Western Antarctica. They were each administered by a Governor, who was appointed by the President of the United States.

Presidents (1986-Present)

Byrdia became independent in 1986, and since then, has been governed by a President. Following the tradition of the former Governor (which was, in turn, inherited from the United States Presidential system), the President serves a four-year term which is renewable once.

As Andrey Trishin had already served two years as Governor before being reelected as President, the General Assembly ruled that his first term expired in 1988, rather than 1990.
