Maria Enriquez de Luna (1474 – 1539) was the wife of Juan (Giovanni) Borgia, second Duke of Gandia. She was a niece of King Ferdinand II of Aragon and Queen Isabella of Castille, and therefore of the House of Trastamara. By her husband Juan, they had two children: Juan de Borja y Enriquez (known as Juan Borgia), who became the 3rd duke of Gandía, and Francisca de Jesus Borja, who became a nun at a convent in Valladolid. This second Juan was the father of Saint Francis Borgia.
Sometime after the end of Pope Alexander VI's papacy, Maria, along with her aunt Isabella of Castille, tried to press murder charges against her brother-in-law, Cesare Borgia for the alleged murder of her husband Juan.
