Greek Patriarchs of Antioch from 518 to 1724[edit]

After 1098, the Patriarchate was in exile, at first at Constantinople, having been replaced by a Latin Patriarch.

With Theodosius, the Patriachate returned to Antioch.

With Ignatius, the Patriachate transferred to Damascus.

The Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch split into two factions in 1724 as the Melkite Greek Catholic Church broke communion with the Orthodox Church and established communion with the Catholic Church (see List of Melkite Greek Catholic Patriarchs of Antioch)
