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

He was one of between 8 to 12 sons born to Ida of Bernicia, founder of the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Bernicia. Nothing is known of his life and reign. The earliest authorities differ widely on the order and the regnal years of the kings between the death of Ida and the beginning of Æthelfrith's rule (592/593).
