Five Sovereign Terma Revealers or Five Tertön Kings (Tib. tertön gyalpo nga; Wyl. gter ston rgyal po lnga) are the most important tertöns. They were all emanations of King Trisong Detsen.

  1. Nyang Ral Nyima Özer (1124-1192), the body incarnation of Trisong Detsen
  2. Guru Chökyi Wangchuk (1212-1270), the speech incarnation of Trisong Detsen
  3. Dorje Lingpa (1346-1405)
  4. Pema Lingpa (1445/50-1521)
  5. Pema Ösel Do-ngak Lingpa (Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo) (1820-1892)

Sometimes the list also includes the great tertön Rigdzin Gödem (1337-1408).
