Guile de Sola (31st of the First Seed, 1491 – 9th of the Sun's Smile, 1532) was Duke of Istria from 1530 to 1532, after the abdication of his uncle Titus de Sola. During the Dukes' War, Guile originally served as his uncle's standard-bearer, and later knight, from where he gained middle renowned for his actions on the field. Also for his participation in numerous tourneys and his combat skill, he was named 'Champion of Oren', a title disputed by few.

Guile served a brief reign as Duke of Istria, attempting to maintain peace between two quarreling vassal lords, the Lord Roswell and Lord Falkenrath respectively, while also combating gout which had tormented him through the later half of his life. He later succumbed to the illness, and with no issue of his own, led to the First Diet of Metz which saw his cousin and Titus' grandson, Philip de Sola, to the ducal coronet.
