Abstract: It is well known that the only simple distributive lattice is the two-element chain. We can generalize the concept of a simple lattice to complete lattices as follows: a complete lattice is complete-simple if it has only the two trivial complete congruences. In this paper we show the existence of infinite complete-simple distributive lattices.
