The Greek ironclad Vasilissa Olga (Greek: Βασίλισσα Όλγα), named for Queen Olga of Greece, served in the Royal Hellenic Navy from 1869 to 1925. She was the first of two Hellenic Navy ships to bear this name.
The ship was ordered from the Austro-Hungarian shipbuilder Stabilimento Tecnico Triestino. Vasilissa Olga served on active duty from 1870 to 1915, but the ship never saw action, as she was converted into cadet training ship in 1897. She was decommissioned in 1925 and was scrapped.
