Glappa of Bernicia ruled from 559 to 560. He was the second known king of Bernicia.

Little is known of Glappa's life and reign; the earliest authorities differ widely on the order and the regnal years of the kings between the death of Ida (559) and the beginning of Æthelfrith's rule (592/593). Glappa is not named among the sons given his predecessor, Ida, but appears in regnal lists as Ida's successor, reigning one year.
