Adelheid of Istria (13th of the Grand Harvest, 1500 – Unknown) was the first Johannian Empress-consort of Oren as the wife of John I, Holy Orenian Emperor, from his accession to the throne in 1526, until their controversial divorce in 1535.


Adelheid was born to the brash Titus de Sola and his spouse, Gloria de Savoie, in 1500 within the confines of the city of Petrus, prior to her father's investiture as the Duke of Istria. She was therefore the granddaughter of the famous general, Vibius the Younger (alternatively known as Vibius Hanseticus).
