This is a list of Governors of the Venezuelan state of Monagas. Until 1989 they were appointed by the President of Venezuela. Starting from that year they are elected in universal, direct and secret elections. In some years the head of Monagas state was known as President or Civil and Military Chief, in others Governor. Monagas was created in its present form in 1909. It existed previously as the Province of Maturín (Maturín being its capital) from 1856, becoming the State of Maturín in 1864, before being merged with another state in 1879.
