This is a list of Masters of Christ's College, Cambridge. The head of Christ's College is termed the "Master". Christ's grew from God's House, an institution founded in 1437 on land now occupied by King's College Chapel. It received its first royal licence in 1446. It moved to its present site in 1448 when it received its second royal licence. It was renamed Christ's College and received its present charter in 1505 when it was endowed and expanded by Lady Margaret Beaufort, mother of King Henry VII. The last Proctor of God's House, John Sickling, became the first Master of the new college.
